Ramon Revilla, Sr. was born on March 8, 1972, in Imus, Cavite as Jose Acuña Bautista. He was a popular ´50s action star.

Revilla joined showbiz in 1951 and initially played bit parts in many films such as “Pepeng Saclaw,” “Ulila ng Bataan,” “Recuerdo,” “Mister Kasintahan,” “Mga Umaga Pang Darating,” “Balisong,” “Kurdapya,” “Gorio at Tekla,” “Matandang Dalaga,” “Scout Rangers,” “Walang Himala,” “Sa Dulo ng Landas,” “Abak sa Panalangin,” “Balisong,” “Tarhata,” “Binibining Kalog,” “Walang Daigdig” and “Bim, Bam, Bum.”

However, Revilla had a change of heart and left showbiz to work in the Bureau of Customs, where he became head of Secret Service Unit in 1965. Apparently, that was not God’s plan for somebody whom He blessed with immense acting talent and love for show business.

In 1972, Revilla returned to showbiz and gained fame for playing “Nardong Putik: Kilabot ng Cavite” (Leonardo Manicio), the amulet-wielding gangster-turned-folk hero of Cavite. The character became iconic that Nardong Putik undoubtedly became closely associated with Revilla.

The late Fernando Poe Jr. and Revilla even did a film together, “Iyo ang Tondo, Kanya ang Cavite,” where the latter was identified as a tough guy from Cavite, while Poe represented Tondo.

Revilla also portrayed Pepeng Agimat, a character that spewed invincible superhuman powers and became also iconic to Filipinos.

Revilla’s acting did not go unnoticed. In 1973, he won a FAMAS Best Actor Award for “Hulihin si Tiyagong Akyat.” In the same film, Revilla’s eldest son, Marlon Bautista, got the Best Child Actor trophy.

Many films of Revilla were bankrolled by the family’s outfit, Imus Productions, which was accorded with the Outstanding Film Production award in 1975. The following year, Revilla was recognized as Outstanding Producer of the Year.

In 1992, Revilla joined politics and was elected senator. He served in the senate for two terms and made sure that he authored important bills, particularly the amendment of the Family Code of the Philippines in 2004.
