Fernando Poe Jr. is mean and brutal when it comes to his opponents, but "meek as a lamb" when it comes to his leading ladies. One of a few and rare times Fernando Poe Jr. do "lip service," this time to starlet Martha Sevilla in a scene from the 1980 fantasy movie, "Ang Panday."

This is one movie I failed to see during its theatrical run in 1979. The title baffles me? What is really the "secret" of Guadalupe? Could it be a buried treasure? I hope to catch it in succeeding telecast of Cinema FPJ or at SkyCable Cinema One.

With a wooden club as his only weapon, Fernando Poe, Jr. takes on and easily subdues a band of hired goons out to finish him off in FPJ Productions’ action film, King. It reminds me of a 1973 movie, Walking Tall, wherein the lead character Sheriff Pusser (played by Joe Don Baker) uses a wooden club or a baseball bat to demolish his foes.

Just uploaded a film clip of the 1983 movie, Isang Bala Ka Lang, Part One. It's a scene wherein FPJ, his ego shattered, evened up with his tormentors with his rapid-punching, fist-lightning and fighting skills. It's FPJ at his best!
