In the ‘50s and early ’60s, Miss Rita Gomez was Sampaguita Pictures’ ‘resident vida-contravida.’ She played mostly bad-girl roles, but with redeeming values in the end.
Think of Reyna Bandida, Society Girl, Maldita, Tatlong Magdalena and Talipandas, which gave her the 1958 FAMAS Best Actress award.
In accompanying ad of Ito Ba Ang Aking Ina?, Miss Gomez is a femme fatale, ’the face…the woman…the kind of story you’ll talk about long after you’ve seen this picture!!‘ Or so says the blurb.
Outside Sampaguita, Miss Gomez also portrayed bad-girl roles in Lihim ng mga Makasalanan, Pagdating sa Dulo, Laman sa Laman, Gamitin Mo Ako, Ina, Kasusuklaman Ba Kita? — RKC
