Leni Santos was a popular actress in the 80s. Although she will forever be identified with the movie D’ Punks, which is the most maligned local film of all time, she redeemed herself when she appeared in a short, but memorable role as a mistress in Lino Brocka’s Miguelito: Ang Batang Rebelde with Aga Muhlach in the lead. Leni was also effective in her other roles both on TV and in the movies. But she was so miscast in D’Punks. Her leading man there by the way was Rey “PJ” Abellana, father of current TV sweetheart Carla Abellana of Rosalinda. In due fairness to PJ Abellana, he also developed into a fine actor in later years.
