THE SIXTIES # 457: FERNANDO POE, JR., JOSE ROMULO, BOB SOLER, BERTING LABRA, CARLOS PADILLA, JR., LOU SALVADOR, JR. AND ALL ALL-STAR CAST IN "SIGAW NG DIGMAAN" (1963)

A handful of soldiers (led by FPJ) holed up in a hilltop to repel the horde of advancing Japanese troops, sacrificing their lives for their beloved country. FPJ, the last man standing, was killed here, with bayonets, one of the rare times where he died on screen (and fans don't like it). 

FPJ Productions' "Sigaw ng Digmaan" won four FAMAS awards--- Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor (Lito Anzures); Best Cinematography (Sergio Lobo) and Best Editing  (Atilano Salvador).

FPJ with Bob Soler during a break


Over a stretch of jagged hills in Montalban, Rizal, two helicopters hovered low, each with a movie camera unit aboard shooting a noisy, smoky activity on the cogon-clad ground below. A third camera unit was on a hillside taking in the scene from a closer angle. On a slope nearby, a group of popular male players crouched behind sandbags, spraying rifle and machinegun fire at a horde of extras playing Japanese soldiers, advancing hundred yards away. All over the place, explosions burst from the ground, supposed to be artillery bombardment. Every bullet though was blank and the simulated artillery blast was practically harmless. Yet this was a very realistic battle scene, said to be the biggest so far ever staged locally. The one-day filming of the battle scene cost FPJ Productions a reported P8,000.  The war movie, Sigaw ng Digmaan, starring Fernando Poe, Jr. and a host of other big stars, written and directed by Efren Reyes, is reported to be big in production aspect.
