FPJ BILANG ISANG "CONTRAVIDA"
Did you know that FPJ did a movie where he played the role of a villain to lead star, Zaldy Zshornack in the 1957 Gerry de Leon's "Kamay ni Cain." That time he had been somewhat in the shadow not only of Zaldy but of other big teen-age stars then, like Romeo Vasquez: but Cain was the last time Ronnie would get a part that of second lead or contravida. Under De Leon's direction, he was able to improve his craft. His performance on that movie earned him a Famas award nomination for Best Supporting Actor. The award, of course, went to veteran actor Eddie Garcia for his convincing role in "Taga sa Bato."
