Perlas Ng Silangan
Perlas Ng Silangan is a classic historical love story starring Philippine Cinema's original love tandem: Fernando Poe Jr. and Susan Roces. Perlas Ng Silangan tells the story of Amid (FPJ), who washes ashore after being discarded by the Spaniards. He is welcomed by the natives as the estranged son of the Datu who was at war with the colonizers. There, Amid meets and falls in love with Dayang Mahalina (Susan Roces), the local Datu's daughter. But in order to earn the right to her hand in marriage, Amid must challenge a rival suitor, another Datu pursuing her, in a contest where their dignity and the heart of Dayang Mahalina are at stake.
