Likened to some of Hollywood’s top swordsmen like Errol Flynn, Douglas Fairbanks or even Basil Rathbone, 50s action greats Efren Reyes (Sr.) and Juan ‘Johnny’ Monteiro starred in an action- adventure epic aptly titled Eskrimador. The two popular stars displayed their dashing mantle of swordplay, debonair acrobatics and daring stunts. Their mastery of the sword thrilled their fans and seeing them leaping over parapets, rescuing exotic princess with one hand and effectively foiling the opposition with adept thrusts of the sword.
The movie was based from a komiks serial by Clodualdo del Mundo serialized in Hiwaga Komiks.
