..."As for Ronnie's appearance in Multo sa Opera, I am not aware of this. When my papa passed away Ronnie was only 11 yrs old. The last movie produced by the Fernando Poe Production was Multo, my uncle Jose Samson produced this with the ok of my mumpy who didn’t know anything about the business. It was a last ditch to save the production and the studio but it laid an egg. We lost everything. It was Mumpy who produced Anak ni Palaris with the insurance money we got. As she said, it was the best investment she ever made. Ditto. Take care. God bless."On my personal assessment, Ronnie may have appeared in Multo sa Opera so as to acclimatize him in the world of cinema before going solo two months later. Since the director (Mario Barri) was his director in his supposed first movie, Anak ni Palaris and the producer, Jose Samson, was his uncle, there’s a great probability that he appeared in the said movie. Things could have been lot easier if FPJ was still alive today or if the film still exists.
