Nina Bonita (1955)
Directed by F.H. Constantino
Written by Pierre L. Salas
Jaime de la Rosa and Charito Solis
To make a Filipino adaptation of Frank Capra's It Happened One Night, LVN launched a search for a new face, an instant star so to speak, and that new face turned out to be Charito Solis. The film was a hit and Charito became the 'Cinderella Star' and eventually one of Philippine cinema's most enduring icons.
In Niña Bonita, Charito portrays a rich but very spoiled girl who insists on marrying a man who is obviously only after her money. While holed up in their vacation house in Baguio, Charito manages to escape and in a bus, meets a seasoned newspaper reporter (Jaime de la Rosa), who is in dire need of a scoop.
Their road adventure opens the young girl's eyes to life outside her sheltered existence, and she realizes she's got a lot of growing up to do.
