Nora started her movie career under SPI, where she was only given minor and supporting roles, and it was Tower who recognized her potentials and believed in her talents. Tower executives Ms. Victoria Villanueva and director Artemio Marquez took the challenge and invested money to launch the young Bicolano girl to full stardom in D’ Musical Teenage Idols in 1969. The movie was a big box-office success. More hit movies came her way that catapulted her to greater heights. It was in 1970 that Nora was caught in a crossfire in a legal battle between her former mother studio, SPI and her new home studio, Tower as to who could legally avail of her services. The charges and counter-charges that followed proved advantageous to the young rising star for she came out the winner and become an even bigger star.
