34.  Anthony Alonzo – yes, it was indeed true that movie actors then were considered to have an incomplete portfolio if they do not have a movie with Nora Aunor.  Anthony Alonzo who went on to become a revered action star and award winning actor was one of the two leading men of Nora Aunor in “Reyna ng Pitong Gatang (1980.)”

35.  Robert Jaworski – sports and cinema are two of the most favorite forms of entertainment among Filipinos.  At the height of PBA’s popularity in the 70’s, only the TV show of Nora Aunor could meet it head to head.  You must have heard thousands of stories how mom and dad made compromise in order to watch both shows during Sundays.   Thus, it was not surprising if Nora and The Big J would share movie billings.  In fact, they appeared in two movies together namely, Sapagkat Kami’y Mga Misis Lamang (1976) and Dobol Dribol (1979.)big-j-and-nora

36.  Orestes Ojeda – he was the hottest male bold star of his generation.  Nora and Orestes shared screen credits in the movie “Huwag Hamakin Hostess” (1978.)  The movie is not only known as the first adult oriented movie of Nora Aunor but it was the only movie where the most popular female stars of the seventies appeared in one movie not just in an omnibus movie.
