THE SEVENTIES # 1114: DOLPHY, NIÑO MUHLACH, WITH PHILLIP SALVADOR, MARISSA DELGADO IN LINO BROCKA'S " ANG TATAY KONG NANAY" (1978)

(Synopsis) Dioscoro “Coring” Derecho (Dolphy) is a gay beautician who likes dressing up in women’s clothes. He has been taking care of Dennis (Phillip Salvador), his boyfriend of five years. However, Dennis leaves him without word. Dennis has been shacking up with a bar hostess, Mariana Jimenez (Marissa Delgado). After some time, Dennis returns with a baby boy. He leaves the baby behind and tells Coring that he is joining the U.S. Navy. Coring is now saddled with a child. He is baptized Marlon Brando Derecho or Nonoy (Nino Muhlach).

Coring changes his lifestyle as he does not want Nonoy to undergo the same identity crisis and the mockery and taunts that go with it. As the boy grows up, he tries hard to be a father. He acts straight when he is with him. This alienates his gay friends who are also forced to ad like men when they’re with the boy.

After several years, Dennis returns. He sees Mariana again who is now rich after her widower-husband died. Mariana is now different and wants the child back. He tells her where to get him. She approaches Coring. But Coring doesn’t want to give up Nonoy. But after consultation with Bebang (Lorli Villanueva), his aunt, Coring agrees to give up the child. He scolds him more often, so that Nonoy would be more amenable to live with Mariana. 

One day, he packs his bags and sends him to her well-appointed house. But Nonoy does not get along with his real mother. He always gets in her way. Nonoy decides to return to Coring. In a gay beauty contest, it is Coring’s turn to speak. He talks about the trials and hardships of being a gay—the joys and sorrows, the loneliness. Rain cuts short his speech and he rushes back home. He sees Nonoy on his doorstep.

THE SEVENTIES # 1108: CHANDA ROMERO, PHILLIP SALVADOR, MARISSA DELGADO, MONA LISA, BEN RUBIO IN LINO BROCKA's "MANANAYAW" (1978)

(Synopsis) Letty (Chanda Romero), a sex model in a supper club “fashion drama”, is the kept woman of Ramon Vergara (Ben Rubio), a politician. He is enamoured with her naive amorality and rewards her with ample favors. Dindo (Phillip Salvador), her partner in the act, is a dreamer who hopes to become big as a legitimate fashion model. His unaffected ways are soothing and precious to Letty. 

Ramon sets up Letty in a furnished apartment. His wife, Carina (Mona Lisa), expresses her disgust but allows his indiscretions as long as they remain as temporary arrangements. However, Ramon falls deeply in love with Letty and wants to have a child by her. Letty begins to feel the pressure. She does not want to become pregnant. 

She leaves the supper club and showers her affection on Dindo, who, it appears, is also in love with her. Ramon discovers the affair and throws out Letty. She is forced to live with Dindo in his small apartment. But Dindo is the practical type and aspires for a higher standard of living. The two soon realize that they cannot live together. Letty goes back to the supper club and dials Ramon. She is now agreeing to his demands — and to his macho domination.
