DELIA RAZON AND MARIO MONTENEGRO IN "PRINSIPE TEÑOSO" (1954)

Based on the original script of Manuel Conde, the 1954 version of Prinsipe Tenoso tells of Prince Tenoso who is exiled by his father, the king after freeing the pitiful giant from jail. In gratitude, the giant gives Tenoso a magic handkerchief that can tame animals and can give him his wishes. As a beggar, Tenoso is despised by the princes, the king's soon-to-be sons-in-law, but eventually is recognized as the hero responsible for curing the king's illness, and winning the king's battles against the moors.

AMALIA FUENTES AND ROMANO CASTELLVI IN "PUERTO PRINCESA"(1966)

60s screen idols Amalia Fuentes and Romano Castellvi starred in this 1966 action-adventure, "Puerto Princesa," which was aired over Skycable Cinema One several months back. I don't ever recall or remember seeing or encountering any Billy Castellvi movies for a very long time except for this one. Though suffering from a very thin plot and sloppy action scenes, still the movie is a nice visual treat, thanks to the two main stars...


"Puerto Princesa" (1966)- Stars Amalia Fuentes, Romano Castellvi, Renato Robles, Jose Villafranca, Tibo Legaspi, Totoy Garcia, Cora Santos, Lina Carillo, Marilou Ver and the SOS Daredevils/ Directed by Tony Cayado

Swept and washed away in a remote island of Puerto Princesa, Romano (Romano Castellvi) was taken care of by the island owner, Alah (Jose Villafranca) and his beautiful daughter, Amihan (Amalia Fuentes) and adopted son, Ramir (Renato Robles). Romano soon got familiarize with the place and later fell in love with Amihan. Romano ‘s true identity was later uncovered and revealed... it turned out that he was an undercover agent, codenamed Domino, assigned and tasked to track down the mastermind of the smuggling syndicate operating in the island. Alah was initially tagged as the prime suspect, but it turned out to be his adopted son. Romano with his combative skills was able to neutralize and topple the syndicate.
