In 1961, Premiere Productions pitted Cesar Ramirez against Van de Leon in Vengativo, where they portrayed bandit and police officer, respectively. Cesar and Van used to be Sampaguita Picturesâ€™ contract stars.
Vengativo was serialized in Liwayway Magazine, written by Francisco V. Coching and directed by Danilo H. Santiago.
The â€˜tension-packed storyâ€™ co-starred Myrna Delgado, another former Sampaguita star, Ruben Rustia and Eddie Mesa (husband of Rosemarie Gil and father of Michael de Mesa, Mark and Cherie Gil). â€” RKC
