THE EIGHTIES # 119: FERNANDO POE, JR., LIZ ALINDOGAN, BENTOT, JR., PAQUITO DIAZ, LITO ANZURES, VICTOR BRAVO AND MAX ALVARADO IN "ANG PANDAY" (1980)

Ang Panday was FPJ's official entry in the 1980 Metro Manila Film Festival. It went on to bag the festival's top grosser and once again reaffirmed FPJ's stature as the filmdom's top moneymaker and undisputed top box-office star. The movie was adapted from a popular Pilipino Komiks serial novel by veteran writer-director Carlo J. Caparas. The first issue came out in March 19, 1979 and became an instant hit among komiks readers.
