Tagalog Movie

Directed by F. H. Constantino
Story by Virgilio Redondo & Alfredo Alcala, serialized in Espesyal Komiks
Screenplay by Armando de Guzman

Nida Blanca as Julieta, 'ang babaing gubat'

Perhaps the years 1955 and 1956 were the most prosperous years for the studio. The audience for Filipino films had grown considerably, in spite of the overwhelming popularity of Hollywood films. The studio was releasing an average of 2 to 3 films a month. Budgets were bigger than ever, musical production numbers more lavish, more sophisticated filming equipment was being purchased. By 1956 the studio was already winning major awards in the South East Asian festival, and Filipino films were s econd in quality only to Japanese films. Love teams were very much in vogue, and the studio had exclusive control over the most popular one, the Nida Blanca/Nestor de Villa love team, as well as the director who directed the best of the series, F. H. Constantino.

Nida Blanca was already tremendously popular by the time Talusaling was made. She had already portrayed a wide variety of offbeat roles - a tomboyish 'sitsaron' vendor in Luneta (1954), a 'kulambo' vendor who expertly wielded a balisong in Batangueρa(1953), and when she and Nestor de Villa first started dancing in the film Squatters (1953), it became a vital part of their repertoire in film after film. Although she herself said she was her home studio's 'most unglamorous star' she was arguably Philippine Cinema's biggest star of the time.
