PRE-WAR FILIPINO MOVIES

Before the devastating World War II, Philippine film industry was a thriving industry. Film studios like Malayan Movies, Nolasco Films, Filippine Films, Sampaguita Pictures, LVN Pictures, Lebran and many others made films one after another, competing with each other, discovering new movie stars and directors. Most of the films made before the war were either lost or destroyed. A few survived (Pakiusap (1940), Tunay Na Ina (1939), Ang Ibong Adarna (1941), Giliw Ko (1939) and one recovered by film director Nick de Ocampo from the American Library of Congress (Zamboanga (1937). The same is true with post-war films, classics made by great Filipino directors Gerry de Leon, Lamberto Avellana, Manuel Conde, Gregorio Fernandez, Ramon Estella, Eduardo de Castro, were either lost or just waiting to be discovered from some film collectors' basements. Manuel Conde's "Genghis Khan" is with the French film archive, Gerry de Leon's "Sanda Wong" was recovered from Hong Kong, de Leon's "Banga Ni Zimadar" and "Dyesebel", and Fernando Poe's "Darna" were found by Howie Severino of GMA-7's "I-Witness" in Thailand film archive and the Thai government is willing to return these Filipino treasures if we have already our own film archive that will take care of them. We are still hopeful that many of our considered lost films will someday re-surface and be discovered by "film archaeologists".

Wow! Iam studying History of Theater and Film and I jst realize how rich and creative our Philippine Movie Industry was. I can't blame veteran Stars now when they compare the Stars of today from their generation.

hi
maari ko po bang malaman kung san pwedeng makakita o makauha ng kopya ng mga pre-war movies?
ipinapalabas pa po ba ang mga ito sa ngayon.maraming salamat.

Iilan na lamang ang mga pre-war movies na naisalba, tulad ng TUNAY NA INA, GILIW KO, PAKIUSAP, IBONG ADARNA, ZAMBOANGA. Ang lahat ay nasira ng Ikalawang Digmaang Pandaigdig. Ipinapalabas ang mga nabanggit na pelikula kapag mayroong mga Film Festivals, kung di ako nagkakamali, nasa archive ang mga ito ng Cultural Center of the Philippines.

Hi! where did you get these photos?

Nakakapanghinayang isiping maraming hindi naisalba sa mga pre war films, kahit sa mga pelikula noon pagkatapos ng giyera... Kung sanang pwede lang talagang balikan ang oras para makita at mapanood ko lahat ang mga pelikulang yon. HAYST!
