Gloria Lerma Yatco, better known by her screen name Mona Lisa (born June 22, 1922), is a FAMAS Award-winning Filipino film actress. Known by the screen name Fleur de Lis before and during World War II, she was one of the most popular Filipino actresses of the late 1930s and 1940s.[1] She was paired with Ely Ramos in LVN Pictures' Giliw Ko, directed by Carlos Vander Tolosa, where she made history as the first actress to appear in a Filipino film wearing a bathing suit. She resumed her film career in the 1970 after an absence of nearly two decades and remained active in the industry well into her eighties.
