Giliw Ko (1939)
Category Vintage
Label LVN

Tagalog Movie

Written and Directed by Carlos Vander Tolosa
Music by Juan Silos Jr and Ariston Avelino

The only extant but deteriorated 16mm print was restored in Australia and blown up to a new 35mm negative. The sound was lifted from existing U-matic tapes and digitally restored. Although portions of the film still need further restoration, the film is generally complete and relives an era of innocence and simple Filipino values long gone.

Fleur de Lis (Mona Lisa), Ely Ramos,
Mila del Sol, Fernando Poe Sr.

Giliw Ko was the first film produced by the newly formed LVN Pictures, Inc. in 1938 and subsequently released in 1939 with no less than President Manuel Quezon attending the film's premiere at the Metropolitan Theater. The film stars top matinee idols of the time, Fernando Poe Sr. and Ely Ramos. Completing the cast are newcomers Mila del Sol and Fleur de Lis, who later changed her screen name to Mona Lisa.

Mila del Sol: "Ang Buhay ng Artista"

Ely Ramos and Fleur de Lis

Giliw Ko is a romantic musical, in the tradition of the zarzuela, typical of the era and features such classic songs as Tunay na Tunay and Ang Buhay ng Artista. The story centers around Mila del Sol, who plays a barrio lass dreaming of a singing career on radio (a novelty at that time) in Manila. Although quite fond of her childhood sweetheart, Fernando Poe Sr., she becomes infatuated with the son of their hacienda landlord, Ely Ramos, who happens to be a successful musician. He takes Mila t o Manila to make her a popular radio singer. Although her first radio broadcast is a success, the naive probinsiyana is disheartened to know that Ely is already engaged to a pretty Manila socialite, Fleur de Lis. In the end Mila realizes how much Poe means to her and she returns to the province to be with him.
