VILMA SANTOS IN MARS RAVELO'S "GING" (1963): KOMIKS SERIAL AND MOVIE ADAPTATION


In 1963, prolific komiks writer Mars Ravelo came up with a beautiful novel titled, Ging, a poignant story of a poor gifted girl, trying to make both ends meet by singing and dancing in crowded streets and cafeterias. It was one of the popular komiks serial that time that eventually landed into the big screen in 1964 with nine or ten-year old Vilma Santos in the lead role. It was a terrific follow-up to her highly successful debut film, Trudis Liit in 1963.

Here’s a glimpse of that well-read and closely followed novel as it appeared on the pages of Liwayway Magazine with artist Elpidio Torres illustrating.
