Welcome to Mondo Monday with Tabonga, here at The Dungeon! Tonite we go south of the border to spend some time with another Mexican Masked Wrestler, Neutron, The Atomic Superman!! There were a total of 6 Neutron flicks between 1960-5 starring Wolf Ruvinskis, this was the last one in the series.
Assassinations (love that word) are happening all over the place, and, the cops are pretty sure that dudes who do karate are responsible!
The music is by the prolific composer, Antonio Díaz Conde, who we've featured many times, here at The Dungeon. A few movies he worked on are THE AZTEC MUMMY AGAINST THE HUMANOID ROBOT, SANTA CLAUS, DANGERS OF YOUTH, LITTLE VILLAGE, FRONTIER OF TERROR, NEUTRON vs THE MANIAC, THE BLACK GHOST, WRESTLING WOMEN vs THE AZTEC MUMMY, PLANET OF THE FEMALE INVADERS and NIGHT OF THE BLOODY APES!
Awrat then, let us bring in our lil'est of all Dungeon Helpers, that teeny, tiny member of the fly family, that's right... It's... Rufus The Gnat!! Yip, yip, yippy! Rufus sez he's ready to take the plunge... err, no... He's ready to push the big red 'GO' button over there near the pool, and, there he goes, enjoy!.. NEUTRON BATTLES THE KARATE ASSASSINS!!
You'll notice this is a print off TV, because, it was way too much work to remove all those 'de Pelicula' overlays...
I think this is Imelda Miller as the club singer, as heard ala le soundclip!
Classic shot of Neutron as he prepares to break into this place, dude has to take a wicked leak, now!..
During the day, Neutron has a regular job, he's a police detective! Here he is on a spying assignment with his partner, Ariadna Welter. You may remember Ariadna as the barfly/second victim in THE BRAINIAC, and, she also had a role in the American movie, THE DEVIL'S HAND!
Hey!.. I'll bet you that's a clue!!!
Neutron joins the gym in order to get information on the owner, who's played by Germán Robles, first introduced into movies in 1957 as The Count in EL VAMPIRO!
Neutron adjust the blinds just right for that perfect, sneaky peek!
Just love this still, that's all...
Amelda belts out another tune as...
Germán drowns his sorrows with booze at the bar! If you squint, looks like he's toking a pipe!
The best part of the show is when The Gay Crooners take the stage and kick some butt in style, as heard in the soundclip!
The Assassins start playing rough and gas anybloody that gets in their way, including our hero!
And, just when all the bad guys start fighting amongst themselves, the stupid cops show up! Great, now they're buddies again!!
Great car chase action!..
Neutron has to fend off four big guys, but, when they pull his mask off, well, the Karate Assassins pay for it in spades!!
Neutron, now unmasked, hides in the background when the police arrive on the scene. You know, to protect his identity an' all...
