The Original Leon Guerrero

Leon Guerrero: Laban sa 7 Kilabot (1968) - Stars Jess Lapid, Eddie Garcia, Joe Sison, Martin Marfil, Johnny Montiero and Sofia Moran/ Directed by Cesar 'Chat' Gallardo

Leon Guerrero
, the Pinoy "Lone Ranger" symbolizes the fight of good over evil and the triumph of right over wrong. The name was always associated with actor Lito Lapid. But did you know that before Lito assumed the role of Leon Guerrero, it was his uncle, Jess Lapid Sr. who introduced this legendary gunslinger to the local movie scene. The movie, Leon Guerrero: Laban sa 7 Kilabot was released in 1968 a few months before he was gunned down in a QC nightclub. In 1982, 14 years after, the young Lito Lapid came up with
Alamat ni Leon Guerrero.

Sir, Lito Lapid starred in two Leon Guerrero movies. The first remake titled "Ang Pagbabalik Ni Leon Guerrero" was shown in the late '70s. Leon's costume was black.

"Alamat Ni Leon Guerrero" was sort of a Filipino version of Hollywood's 1981 hit "The Legend Of The Lone Ranger". Leon wore the white Lone Ranger suit this time.

Anyway Sir. Yours is one of the best blogs I've visited. Thanks for sharing all of this. Far out.
