Jose Acuña Bautista (born March 8, 1927), better known as Ramon Revilla, Sr., is a Filipino actor and former Senator of the Philippines. He already had a degree in Commerce from the Far Eastern University before he got discovered (while he was pumping gas) to appear on the big screen. Born Jose Acuña Bautista on March 8, 1927 in Imus, Cavite. he assumed the name Ramon Revilla when he entered the movies. In his initial showbiz entry, the young Ramon Revilla was cast only in bit roles which was not enough for him so he left the movies to become head of the Secret Service Unit of the Bureau of Customs in 1965. Showbiz saw his return in 1972 with the movie Nardong Putik. Like the tough guy he was, he returned to showbiz on his own terms, creating his own film production, Imus Productions, for him to star in. Together with wife Azucena, they ran the film outfit with Revilla writing and directing his films. In 1973, Revilla won a Famas Best Actor Award for "Hulihin si Tiyagong Akyat" together with his eldest son Marlon for a Famas Best Child Actor Award of the same movie. Imus Films was also recognized as Outstanding Film production in 1975.

Wikipedia article

Lakas-CMD, popularly known as Lakas, was a political party in the Philippines. Its ideology and that of its successor is heavily influenced by Christian and Islamic democracy. The party's influence on Philippine society is very evident, especially after the People Power Revolution, which has led the country to elect two presidents from the party, namely Fidel V. Ramos, a United Methodist, and Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, a Roman Catholic. In May 2009, Lakas-CMD merged with Arroyo's KAMPI thereby being known as Lakas Kampi CMD, a completely new entity. On May 2012, Lakas-Kampi renamed itself as Lakas-CMD.
