Maria Rosa Vilma Tuazon Santos-Recto (born Maria Rosa Vilma Tuazon Santos November 3, 1953 in Bamban, Tarlac), commonly known as Vilma Santos-Recto or Ate Vi is a Filipino actress and box office queen for almost four decades. One of the original Philippine movie queens, she rose up to become the versatile actress that has been given the fitting title of “Star for All Seasons” because of her capacity to adapt to the changing mores and values of the Filipino woman, giving a face to their plight and struggles, albeit in success both critically and box-office wise in some of Philippine cinema’s classics such as Trudis Liit (1963), Lipad, Darna, Lipad (1973), Burlesk Queen (1977), Relasyon (1982), Sister Stella L. (1984), Alyas Baby Tsina (1984), Pahiram ng Isang Umaga (1989), Dahil Mahal Kita: The Dolzura Cortez Story (1993), Anak (2000) and Dekada ’70 (2002). She is currently the governor of Batangas, Philippines (2012)(Wikipedia).

Film Reviews: "...Ang The Sensations ay produce ng ABS CBN at dinerek ni Tony Santos Sr. Consistent No. 1 Top rater ang show at kasama ni Vi & Bot sina Perla Adea, Romy Mallari, Rhodora Silva, Darius Razon, Baby de Jesus, Tony Santos Jr., Janine Frias, atbpa. Dahil sa kasikatan nila Vi & Bot ginawang movie ang The Sensations noong April, 1971, big boxoffice hit ito kaya sinundan agad ni direk tony ng " Young Lovers " noong August, 1971, big hit din ito. Ginawan din ng L.P. Album nila Vi & Bot ang The Sensations at muling tinangkilik ng masang pilipino..." - Jojo V. Lim (READ MORE)

"...Sa tuwing sumasapit ang Christmas at valentine’s Day ay nagtatapatan ang mga pelikula nila. Nang ginawa nina Guy at Pip sa Hawai ang pelikulang Blue Hawai, hindi nagpatalo ang Vilma at Edgar. Nagtungo rin sila sa Hawai at ginawa nila ang pelikulang Aloha, My Love bilang pantapat sa pelikula nina Nora at Tirso. Ganyan talaga kainit ang labanan noon ng dalawang parehang ito. Pagkatapos ipalabasa ang mga pelikulang Blue Hawai at Aloha My Love na parehong kumita sa takilya, nagtungo rin ang dalawang pangkat sa USa para gawin naman nila ang pang-Valentine’s Day offering nila. Don’t Ever Say Goodbye ang kina Vilma at Edgar, samantalang ang kina Guy at Pip naman ay ang Gift of Love. Hindi lang iyan. Tuwing sasapit naman ang Metro Manila Film Festival ay nagkakaroon din sila ng kanya-kanyang entry under their respective production companies – ang Tagalog Ilang Ilang for Vi and Bot at Sampaguita Pictures kina Guy at Pip. Halos sila na lang ang siyang pinapanood at iniidolo ng fans..." - Ely S. Sablan (READ MORE)

"...Ang The Sensations ay isa sa pinakasikat at numero unong musical variety show noong early '70s. Dito din sa programang ito nakilala sina Darius Razon, Rhodora Silva, Florence Aguilar, Eva Vivar, Geraldine, Richard La Torre, Romeo Miranda, Rene OrdoƱez, Esperanza Fabon (na isa nang judge ngayon sa Quezon City), ang Two of Us na sina Ronnie Henares at Jojit Paredes at marami pang iba. Sa programa nina Vic at Tony ay palaging pinapatugtog nila ang mga plaka nina Vilma at Edgar (duet) katulad ng Something Stupid (na naging theme song ng Vilma-Edgar fans), Goodnight My Love, I Love You Honey (na ginawang title ng pelikula nila), I Have Dreamed, I Understand, Better Than All, I Wonder Why, Always With You, Two People in Love, You Don't Love Me Anymore at marami pang iba. Si Vic Pacia ay namatay sa isang car accident. Samantala sa The Sensations, pinauso ni Vilma ang sayaw na Vilma's Penguin. Kwelang kwela ang mga bumubuo ng The Sensations at ito ay sa direksiyon ng isa sa pinakamahusay na aktor ng pelikulang Pilipino na si Tony Santos Sr. (si Ka Dencio sa pelikulang Sister Stella L, remember? at naging Best Supporting Actor din sa Asya). As a matter of fact, ang The Sensations ay ginawang pelikula ng Tagalog-Ilang-Ilang Productions na kinunan pa sa iba't ibang parte ng Pilipinas. May kinunan din nito sa Pagsanjan Falls kung saan muntik nang malunod si Romy Mallari. Nang ideklara ni President Marcos ang martial law noong 1972 ay biglang nawala din ang The Sensations, pati na ang ABS CBN 2 ay isinara, subali't ito ay pinalitan ng Santos, Mortiz And Associates sa ibang TV station na. Nang maghiwalay ng landas sina Vilma at Edgar ay nawala na din ang Santos, Mortiz And Associates. Nagkaroon ng tampuhan ang grupo nina Edgar at Tony Santos, Sr. at ang grupo ni Vilma at Ike Lozada. Si Vilma ay ipinareha ni Ike kay Jojit Paredes pero nanligaw din si Ronnie Henares kay Vi. Si Vilma at Jojit ay iginawa ng pelikula ni Baby K. Jimenez (isang drumbeater ni Nora Aunor) via Tok Tok Palatok, isang comedy movie. Si Vilma at Ronnie naman ay gumawa din ng pelikula sa Lea Productions na may pamagat na Let's Do The Salsa, isa namang musical film..." - Alfonso Valencia (READ MORE)
