    Still a classic.

    Senior Master Roland Dantes has shared many of his memories of the preparation and filming of the movie with me. Professor Remy A. Presas was the fight choreographer for the movie though at times there were others who have claimed they in fact were. Professor Remy and ONLY him trained and prepared Roland Dantes for the movie as Roland was already training under the auspices of the Professor.

    It was during filming Senior Master Vicente R. Sanchez met Professor Remy for the first time and commenced training in Modern Arnis.

    I have quite a few pics from the film which we may put on a web site soon.

    I used to own this movie, I sold it at a biker rally here. I know Gilbert roland was in the movie for a few minutes at the beginning. Was he an escrimador? Or did he learn some moves for the movie. Gilbert roland did more than a few westerns in the states.

    Imua Kuntao, you are correct about Gilbert Roland starring in Pacific Connection. Guro Roland Dantes and I just spoke and he reminded me GM Vicente R. Sanchez was the double for Gilbert Roland during the arnis scenes. According to Guro Roland, Professor Remy and mang Vic were instrumental in creating the fight scenes etc and both are to be credited and applauded.

    Cool, thanks I always wondered about that, that guy was always a bad guy and usually had a knife fight.
