Gerardo de Leon’s ‘Philippine Army or Navy Story’ [?] in “Apat na Bandila”September 13, 2014
This is an omnibus film with Gerardo de Leon’s name on the press kit cover, yet with Director Artemio Tecson’s name written on the credit list instead of Mr. Gerry at the back of the same 8-page kit. Just included for record purposes. The story behind it must be an interesting!! Sino kaya nakakaalam tungkol dito? Sino ba talaga sa kanila? Pa-share naman!
Happy Birthday to Manong Gerry wherever you are!
