D'Musical Teenage Idols (1969)- Stars Nora Aunor, Tirso Cruz III, Ike Lozada, Angelito Marquez, Berting Labra/ Introducing Lyn Salazar/ Directed by Carling Marquez

Director Artemio Marquez offered Nora Aunor top billing in a movie for Tower Productions. He had directed Nora once in YeYe Generation and he saw in her the making of a star. It’s a big gamble on the part of the producer, Ms.Victoria Villanueva, owner of Tower risking sizable fortunes for an untested star. Nora, in an article, says “I wanted to know if a movie starring me would click.” The picture,
D’Musical Teenage Idols
, which co-starred Tirso Cruz III and released in September 23, 1969, was a surprise box-office hit. The gamble paid off and a star was born. This was followed by JBC’s Fiesta Extravaganza, Tower’s Teenage Escapades, JBC’s Halina, Neneng Ko and Viltra Elk’s Nora, The Single Girl. Her starrers were all smash hits. It turned Nora into a Superstar.
