John Agar's Best Film!

GREETINGS & SALUTATIONS! An angry Philippine nationalist stops the planned rebellion against United States forces during the American occupation in 1902, after seeing the Americans helping his people with food and medicine. Written and directed by Eddie Romero. It is 80 minutes long and is in color. Stars John Agar, Richard Arlen, and Myron Healey. This was a joint U.S. and Philippine production shot entirely in the Philippines. John Agar is outstanding in this film. Respectfully yours, Sarge Booker
