THE FIFTIES # 18: LEOPOLDO SALCEDO AND CELIA FLOR IN LAMBERTO AVELLANA'S "HANTIK" (1950)

Excerpts from: “War and Its Aftermath in Philippine Cinema" by Agustin 'Hammy' Sotto---

Philippine cinema depicted the collaborator in the darkest of colors; he is the most despicable and loathsome of villains and deserving his most dastardly fate.

In “Hantik,” a member of the Makapili, the “League of Patriotic Filipinos” organized by the Japanese (the society’s name later became synonymous with traitor), inspects the sacks of rice received as some kind of tax from the townspeople. He exposes the trick played by the starving farmers who mix rice with other substances. He is more vicious than the Japanese and is shot down in the same cruel fashion by the guerrillas.

… Similarly in “Hantik,” Teresa (Celia Flor) befriends the Japanese commander, Colonel Nasimoto (Eusebio Gomez) in order to ask the release of her lover’s father. Her actions are misinterpreted by her lover (Leopoldo Salcedo) and for a time, she is branded as collaborator.

THE FIFTIES # 6: ARMANDO GOYENA AND TESSIE QUINTANA IN "PAGTUTUUS" (1950)

"Pagtutuus" tells of a guerilla (Armando Goyena) determined to hunt down the collaborator who is guilty of killing his family. After the war, the killer is now a wealthy nightclub owner and quite coincidentally, the brother of his girlfriend (Tessie Quintana). His girlfriend tries to dissuade him from his actions, pointing to Jesus on the cross and the virtue of forgiveness. He answers with a most anti-Christian sentiment: "Magagawa n'ya magpatawad sapagka't siya'y Dios. Nguni't ako'y isang nilalang lamang."(Source: War and its Aftermath in Philippine Cinema by Agustin Sotto)
