old philippines : movie stars back in the day












I recently discovered this new entity on FaceBook called Old Philippines. In it I found a growing collection of hundreds of amazing photography ranging from old war images, architecture to old packaging design. I had to share these photos of old Filipino actors and actresses between about the 40s to the 60s. I always love looking at old photographs. I am particularly fascinated not only by the way they are photographed – some of these almost like yearbook photos. But also because I actually remember at least some of the actual names and faces from when I was young (only I remember them as much older faces). It is rare for me to see images of Filipino movie stars, let alone from this time period. It's great to see them as they were back then – in their heyday – pre-Photoshop. They're gorgeous!
