 By Dr. Romy R. Protacio
I have had the excep-tional privilege of meetingand befriending movie ac-tors and actresses who hadonce glamorized the Philip-
 pine lm industry. Many of 
them had taken me into their 
condence and shared with
me fondest memories of 
their once glorious days asmovie stars. They are iconsin their own rights, cultural
representations of that clas-sical period of the Philippine
Balik-TanawWhere are they now?
lm industry. Their liveshad been colorful and their 
memories of fame are their 
treasures. The movies they
starred in are fresh in their 
minds, and they can still eas
ily breathe life into the linesthey once uttered onscreen.They vividly remember thestory behind the movie, theconict and the climax, andhow they portrayed their roles. Most of all, they re
member the applause.I thought, what better wayto pay tribute to my friends
than to translate their life sto-
ries into words and pictures?Their present world maynow be unfamiliar to us,something that many of usmay only occasionally readabout. The mention of their names may sometimes trig
ger a eeting recollection of how they used to look back then. Though some may stillexist only in our collectivememories, many of them arenow unknown or forgottenespecially by today’s genera
tion. This column will at
tempt to resurrect them andgive them their rightful placein history
 Ang column na itoay isang paglalakbay sanagdaang panahon sa pini-lakang tabing na nagdulot  sa atin ng walang ibayong kasiyahan.
Its title, “
 Balik Tanaw
” means to look back 
at the past – in retrospect.This column will take you
 back to the lost eras that now
live within our collectivememories. It will immortal
ize the movie stars of yes
teryears from 1930 to early1960’s who are still surviv
ing the many years of their career.
Samahan ninyo ako saaking gagawing paglalak-bay sa nagdaang panahonng mga dakilang artista nanagbigay sa atin ng wa-lang ibayong kaligayahan.
Come and travel with me
on a journey back in time as
we recall and relive together 
the moments of our hap
 piest years down memorylane. Let us momentarilyescape the hassles of our current existence by visually
remembering that golden eraof Philippine cinema, and perhaps look with a contem-
 plative eye how Philippine
movies have evolved into
what they are now.See page 13 for the storyof Gloria Sevilla: The Queenof Visayan Movie Land

Comedic actor, Will Farrell, was born this week on July 16, 1967.He Starred in playing the role of Ron “Burgundy” in the movie,“Anchorman”. Filmed in San Di-ego as a spoof on Channel 10’s own
local anchorman, Harold “Green”,
Green has come a long way fromgraduating Kearny High School.
He now anchors for another local
station in Los Angeles. Another true-to-life anchorman, NBC’sJohn Chancellor, drew his own rst breath July 14, 1927.Coincidently, Will Farrell cameinto this world on the 198thanniversary of the founding of 
Comedy Actors
the Mission San Diego de Al-cala. Former San Diego Chargersquarterback, and former VicePresidential candidate, Jack Kemp,made his world debut on July 13,1956. President #38, Gerald Ford,entered this world one day later, but in 1913. Ford was the rst andonly unelected Vice President to get NOMINATED to the presidency. No election necessary.The Democratic Party nominatedGeraldine Ferraro to RUN for VicePresident on George McGovern’s62nd birthday -- July 19, 1984.She and then-Vice President Walter Mondale went on to get solidlydrubbed by President Ronald Rea-gan about as badly as McGoverngot trounced by Richard Nixonalmost a decade earlier.Will Farrell was also born on the177th anniversary of the foundingof he District of Columbia, and acomet was telescopically observed
crashing into an exlosive ending
on the planet Jupitor July 16, 1994-- appropriately enough on the49th anniversary of the rst atomic bomb test.Apollo 11 was launched on theA-bomb’s 24th anniversary. Apollo11 was the mission that resultedin man’s rst walk on the moon(which occurred on the 148th birth-day of Christian Science founder,Mary Baker Eddy). The B-2 stealth bomber’s rst successful ight wasconducted July 17, 1989 -- one day before the 68th birthday of astro-naut/senator John Glenn. (He’sthe rst man to orbit the earth inspace.)Rolling Stone’s “gonzo journal-ist”, Hunter Thompson, who effec-tively accomplished that fete manya time on terra rma while “juiced”on Wild Turkey whiskey -- coinci-dently entered this world on JohnGlenn’s 18th birthday. You’ll cer-tainly get more antioxidants from blueberry juice than from Wild Tur-key. In fact, the North AmericanBlueberry Council has dubbed July“National Blueberry Month”.That’s because July marks the
 peak of the April - October harvest
season. Today’s cultivated blueber-ries were rst domesticated in theearly 1900s from New England’shighbrush blueberry. Today, 90%of the world’s blueberry cropcomes from North America too.The blueberry is truly an amaz-ing fruit. It’s highly nutrient denseand is a very rich source of antioxi-dants. (Antioxidants are chemicals
that help slow down the aging
 process and actually work to coun-teract the unhealthy effects of air  pollution.) Blueberries are particu-larly high in phenols, avonol andtannin. For more information aboutthis native American wonder fruit,check out www.nabcblues.org.July is also National “Hot DogMonth” too. For more information,go to www.hot-dog.org. Canine“dogs” certainly love to snack onon this delicious human Super- bowl food -- but that ubiquitousAmerican sausage wiener is notat all nutritious for them. In fact,
“hotdogs” are loaded with preser-
vatives, chemicals and ller -- mak-ing them very UNhealthy for dogsto eat. (Some might say the tastyhot dog is not healthy for people toeat either.)The tastiest avor for all dogtreats is, of all things, LIVER!
Fresh liver -- not even hot dogs
-- is absolutely their FAVORITEthing to eat. And liver is highlynutritious for them as well. Liver isliterally LOADED with high-valueamino acid proteins, enzymes, vi-tamins (especially B-vitamins) andminerals (particularly iron).Since liver is something healthythat is absolutely guaranteed to setyour dog’s taste buds on re, tryliver-avored snacks -- if you reallywant to treat your best buddy to hisfavorite biscuit. When mixed withthe anitoxidants contained in blue- berries, liver snacks can actuallyhelp slow down your dog’s aging
 process and prolong his life; all the
while keeping your dog’s visionsharp, muscles strong and energylevel high.Clement Moore, who penned the poem, “’Twas the Night BeforeChristmas”, was born July 15,1779. Commentator Arianna Huff-ington drew her rst breath July15, 1950 -- on the 344th birthdayof the Dutch painter, Rembrandt.The rst segment of the “Lord of the Rings” series ran off the pressand into book stores July 19, 1954-- on the 8th anniversary of MarilynMonroe’s rst screen test. It’s saidMarilyn got the part even thoughthe sound system prevented theinterviewer from hearing her voice.Guess it wasn’t necessary.

PHILIPPINES NEWS SERVICE-- THE openness of broadcaster Ko
rina Sanchez to enter into a pre-nup
tial agreement with her ancé, Sen.Manuel Roxas II, who came from awealthy Araneta-Roxas clan elicited
different views among lawmakers
yesterday.For Nueva Ecija Rep. EdnoJoson, a pre-nuptial is a way of be
traying the shared responsibilities of 
Korina, Roxas pre-nuptial dealquestions Mar’s commitment
the couple entering into a marriage
as it highlights the preservation of 
wealth.“From the start, mutual trust and
sharing for better or for the worst,for richer or poorer is no longer 
there. Kanya-kanya agad ng prese
vation of wealth on one side really
highlights rich man and poor girl
story,” said Joson.Earlier, Sanchez said she wantedto have a pre-nuptial contract
to “make things clear and avoid
complications.” She insisted that the
contract is a practical arrangement
 between the couple to avoid anynancial squabbles in the future.As of now, Aurora Rep. JuanEdgardo “Sonny” Angara explainedthat a pre-nuptial agreement is “not popular” in the Filipino culture
since divorce is not allowed in the
country.“Hindi pa ito gaano kapopular sakultura dahil din kasi wala na
-mang divorce sa batas natin so ang
expectation ay di magkakagulo sasettlement ng ari-arian pero maymga gumagawa din. At ang kultura
nagbabago din pagdaan ng pana-
hon,” said Angara.
