SANTO CONTRA LA MAFIA DEL VICIO / Cinematográfica Flama - 1971
It's Mexican Mafia Monday with Tabonga, here at The Dungeon!.. This time, our hero Santo goes to Acapulco to relax but ends up battling a dangerous mob that has targeted Mexican chemical plants for sabotage.
This flick features lots of great music, showcasing the talents of singer Jimmy Santy, it even starts with a lengthy musical number! Oh yeah, there's plenty of buxom ladies running around in bikinis, too. Hey, it's Acapulco in the good old summertime!!
Eegah!! sent over a groovy little instrumental soundclip with a sax from this flick, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button there next to the exploding chemicals, NOW, Ralphie The Tarantula! Here's our audio offering for... SANTO CONTRA LA MAFIA DEL VICIO!
It's all sun, fun and chicas for Santo at the beginning, he's definitely earned this vacation.
And, don't forget about the night life in Acapulco, those neon lights are pretty cool. One of my first memories as a child was looking at neon lights as we drove around at night, I also loved cobalt blue glass, I used to imagine a house made out of glass and neon.
There's lots of dance numbers with beautiful ladies in their scanty costumes!
As a bonus, we also get to spend time in the girls' bedroom while they get ready for bed, a favorite pastime of mine.
Actually, Santo's never on vacation, wherever he goes there are always brutal matches he's scheduled to wrestle in!
This is a very tense part, the mafia has sent in a Santo duplicate to kill him. Before the other mafia goons reach the place, Santo has knocked the dude out and changed clothes with him. When the goons come in, they fill their own guy full of lead, then, throw him in the incinerator!! Phew, that was a close one!
Another Mexican hero of mine is this versatile tough guy, Fernando Osés. He played the guy with the spider arm in HELLISH SPIDERS and wrote 30 scripts, mostly classic movies featuring Santo!
Santo has plenty of tricks, when he's told to take off his mask, a small exploding pellet fires, distracting the gunman who then runs away!
It's curtains for the bad guys as Santo has outdone the creeps once again... Viva el Santo!!!
