FERNANDO POE, JR. AND JESS LAPID, WITH REBECCA, LITO ANZURES, VICTOR BRAVO IN "SAN BERNARDO" (1966)


"San Bernardo" (1966)
FPJ Productions
Release Date April 27, 1966/ Center
Music Tony Maiquez

The town of San Bernardo was under the grip of a greedy landowner, Don Cosme (Oscar Keesee) and his band of hired gunslingers. He was out to take full control of the whole town through threat, intimidation and killings.

Two men, Daniel (Fernando Poe, Jr.) and Kardo (Jess Lapid) arrived separately and in incognito, with one purpose --- to get Don Cosme at all cost. Daniel turned out to be an undercover police officer out to arrest him and the avenging Kardo, out to kill him to avenge the death of his father. 

Tension brewed between the two as Daniel wanted Don Cosme alive but not Kardo. In the end, the two joined forces as they needed one another for their survival. The two eventually killed Don Cosme and his men.

FPJ: RECIPIENT OF GAWAD DIREK 2003/ TV Clip UPLOADED

Here's a rare TV footage of FPJ receiving and delivering an acceptance and thank you speech during the First Gawad Direk held at the AFP Auditorium, August 15, 2003. Thanks to Tina for the copy.




In 2003, The Directors Guild of the Philippines, Inc. (DGPI) held its first Gawad Direk at the AFP Auditorium, with Vilma Santos and Christopher de Leon as hosts. It gave tribute to five Filipino filmmakers for their impressive body of works in local cinema. The recipients were National Artist Eddie Romero ("Ganito Kami Noon, Paano Kayo Ngayon," "Sino'ng Kasiping, Sino'ng Kapiling," "Agila"), Celso Ad. Castillo ("Burlesk Queen," "Pagputi ng Uwak, Pag-itim ng Tagak"), Emmanuel H. Borlaza (for his well-crafted melodramas based on komiks novels like "Dapat Ka Bang Mahalin" and "Bituing Walang Ningning"), Ronwaldo Reyes (the pseudonym of Fernando Poe, Jr. who excelled in the action genre like in "Muslim Magnum .357," "Kapag Puno Na ang Salop"), and the late Luciano B. Carlos (a topnotch comedy director who directed Dolphy hits like "Facifica Falayfay" and "Fefita Fofonggay.")
