1979 movie "Ang Agila at ang Falcon."
The popularity and success of James Bond in the 1960s [Dr. No (1962), From Russia with Love (1963), Goldfinger (1964) and Thunderball (1965)] gave rise to a legendary secret spy agent which they called Tony Falcon, Agent X-44. This was what actor Tony Ferrer needed for stardom, a right role and vehicle to inject life to somewhat lackluster and mediocre movie career. After doing supporting and second lead roles to top action stars, like Fernando Poe, Jr., Joseph Estrada, Romeo Vasquez and Zaldy Zshornack, Tagalog Ilang-Ilang Productions gave him his first starring role in “Markong Bagsik” (1964). But it was the role of Agent X-44 that made him a star and propelled him to the top. The movies, “Sabotage”(1966) and "Modus Operandi" (1967) were his biggest X-44 films, the top grossing movies of the 1966 and 1967 First and Second Manila Film Festivals.
