NORA AUNOR Circa 1967

All Over the World - September 1967 - Nora's First Movie

This is an update on Nora's early years in showbiz

After her stints in TV (Channel 13’s Oras ng Ligaya) and radio (DZXL’s Operetang Putol-Putol and Fiesta Extravaganza), Nora Aunor was offered an eight-picture non-exclusive contract with Sampaguita Pictures, with the assurance that she would initially be given singing parts. She was previously been turned down by four other movie outfits. True enough, in All Over the World and Way Out in the Country, her first two movie appearances, she sang with her former Tawag ng Tanghalan opponent, Jose Yap.

In 1967, from September to December, Nora did six movies, all in supporting and minor roles. In one of her interviews, Nora cited the 1967 movie Ang Pangarap Ko’y Ikaw, a Susan Roces-Eddie Gutierrez starrer, as one of her favorites, along with Gerry De Leon’s Banaue (1975); Mario O’Hara’s Tatlong Taong Walang Diyos (1976); Eddie Garcia’s Atsay (1978); Lino Brocka’s Ina Ka ng Anak Mo (1979) and Bona (1980); and Ang Totoong Buhay ni Pacita M (1991).
