EL ASESINO INVISIBLE - Various Artists - "In The Club" (1964)

"El Asesino Invisible" esta uno pelicula loco!!! You've got a hero called El Enmascarado De Oro pitted against an invisible killer, and even though there's a lot of wrasslin' going on with some extreme characters portrayed by real wrestlers with names like 'Karloff' Lagarde, Dorrell Dixon, and my favorite El Bizarro, most of the movie is spent chillin' inside the club with the detective watching Ana Berta Lepe go through about a million costume changes and almost as many varieties of music. Kind of like a sophisticated "Gong Show" and the audience just eats it up and appears to love each and every moment of it!!!

The musical credits are immense as you can see, but a gentleman by the name of Sergio Guerrero gets credit for the original score!! Sergio just passed away this year after an amazing career that had him composing music for over 225 movies!!! Bravo Sergio!!!

Introducing Miss Mexico 1953, Ana Bertha Lepe, a national treasure!!

It was ironic that the handsome and very popular Jorge Rivero portrays Enmascarado De Oro in his very first film outing, and wears a mask through the whole movie! He went on to have an excellent career in Hollywood and Mexico, and was in "Rio Lobo" with John Wayne a few years later.

The best song of the movie is right here, and is called "Negro Blues" I do believe, and you get to see Ana duckwalk too!!

Then it's time for "Un Poco Mas" by Alvaro Carrillo, combined here for your listening pleasure with.....

this "Charleston" number written by Enrico Cabiatti that brings down the house!

Right about here I start getting lost, I know it's time for the candle song, but there's just too many things going on, listen to this, and maybe you'll have a little better understanding!!!!

"La Pollera Colora" and mucho mas!!

Ana is so dedicated to her job, she has a pole in her house!!

There's only one real way to take in this much information, and that's to get a copy for yourself, so just in case you havn't started thinking about those weirdos on your X-Mas list yet, it might be just about the right time!!
