FERNANDO POE, JR., EDNA LUNA, MIRIAM JURADO, RONALD REMY, ACE YORK IN "ANAK NG BULKAN"(1959)/ KOMIKS SERIAL AND MOVIE ADAPTATION/

A monstrous giant bird soars high across Manila and suburbs in 1959 in Emmanuel Rojas’s Anak ng Bulkan. It caught the attention of the moviegoers because of its awesome display of visual and special effects unprecedented during that time. It’s truly amazing how Rojas was able to capture the needed effects with the limited resources at hand. The movie, set in a remote volcanic island, tells of the friendship between a little boy named Bentoy and a giant bird named Goliat.


Fernando Poe Jr. shared top billing with veteran actress, Edna Luna, but the main stars of the movie was the giant bird and the little boy played by 7-year old Ace York (or Ace Vergel). Veteran character actor Bruno Punzalan in the role of Mang Kanuto, the stepfather of Bentoy was unforgettable who made life miserable for the boy.
