Every once in a while the 30-minute WWII Battlefront series on the Military Channel would show an episode titled Fall of the Philippines. Nice documentary. Watch out for it whenever you can. Here are some screenshots for the plug:

WOW! I've only seem this in Balck & white. Thanks for showing! I Never knew there was a colored film version.
It seems the Philippine Scouts are wearing wool shirts. I know some of them carried BAR's as they march out of I beleive Intramurous grounds. And all the different color variations of the Guinit pith hat on the walls of Intramurous. .

Yes, that is the church in Pasig, town proper, the Immaculate Conception. The Fiesta is celebrated on Dec 8 every year, which is the Feast day of the Immaculate Conception. It has a plaza in front of it and a parochial school on the side, as well as a cemetery behind it. Typical Spanish town layout during those times.
Info from my cousin who was born and raised in Pasig.
