"Parola" (1949)- Stars Jaime dela Rosa, Norma Blancaflor, Gil de Leon, Oscar Obligacion, Priscilla Cellona, Naty Bernardo, Jaime Castellvi/ Directed by Jose Climaco
Set against the backdrop of an isolated and solitary lighthouse in a remote island, Parola tells of a man named Juan Moreno (Jaime dela
Rosa) falsely accused of murder and sentenced to a jail term. Believed to have been drowned along with the other prisoners in a shipwreck on their way to a penal colony, Juan was swept away on an island where Mang Pekto (Gil de Leon) and his family had isolated themselves.
Pekto abandoned city life when he discovered his wife’s infidelity. He took refuge in this island with his daughters Lilian (Norma Blancaflor) and Estrella (Priscilla Cellona) and sister Lalia (Naty Bernardo).
After recuperating, Juan disguised himself as Juaning Marcelino. He soon fell in love with Lilian. However, Rolando (Jaime Castellvi), the captain of the ship that delivers supplies to the family, was also in love with Lilian. He found out Juan’s true identity and informed the authorities about it. Juan was arrested.
For a time, Juan’s case was reopened and with new evidence recovered, he was acquitted. Pekto and his family, on the other hand, went back to the city hoping to live a normal life. Juan and Lilian are eventually reconciled.
