MOVIE TRIVIA # 8: ADVENTURES OF DI-13 (1955)

Pinoy viewers were introduced to James Bond in 1962 in the movie Dr. No. But did you know that 7 years earlier, in 1955, Premiere Productions produced a similar type of movie---ala-James Bond? The film was Adventures of DI-13, with Jose Romulo playing the intrepid Filipino sleuth. The blurb says "You'll be gasping for breath as you follow the dangerous, romantic, hilarious adventures of DI-13" --- a typical James Bond formula.
