"Bilis ng Kamay" (1963)- Stars Fernando Poe, Jr., Tony Ferrer, Max Alvarado, Jess Lapid, Bert Olivar, Jose Garcia, Victor Bravo, Manolo Robles, Dencio Padilla/ Directed by Alex Sunga

“For the first time... A real American cowboy--- lightning-fast gunslinger--- against Fernando Poe, Jr. Who is he? Will Ronnie beat him to the draw?,” says a blurb in the 1963 movie, Bilis ng Kamay!. It’s the movie’s selling point, the producer’s marketing strategy to whet the appetite of the moviegoers. I wonder you this guy is--- anybody seen this movie when it was released in the 60s? One popular Hollywood western classic comes to mind--- The Fastest Gun Alive starring Glenn Ford.

Fernando Poe, Jr. caught by surprise by fast-drawing Tony Ferrer.
