SANTO AND THE MYSTERY OF THE BLACK PEARL / Producciones Juan N. Ortega - 1976

It's Cinco de Mayo Monday with Tabonga, here at The Dungeon!.. And, to celebrate the occasion, we gots a wild little action flick starring our hero Santo, that was filmed in 1971 and released in 1976.

Eegah!! sent over an interesting musical soundclip from the flick, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button there by the giant atomic clam, NOW, Ralphie The Tarantula! Here's our audio offering for... SANTO AND THE MYSTERY OF THE BLACK PEARL!

This should start the show off with a bang!......

It's all about Carribean jewel thieves and their quest to take what doesn't belong to them.

The show at the club is quite elaborate with pretty gals and music to match!

This little gang of crooks even have their own office space and desk!

Well, it really wouldn't be a Santo flick without a few hard fought wrestling matches... You know, it's how he makes his living. Man, that bottom shot is totally awesome!

Classic shot of our hero out taking care of business somewhere!

Wow, people with too much money and power really think they're hot shit.

When Santo gets the call, he answers!

Here are two postcard pics from Puerto Rico, Santo just used the rocket ride in the top still to deep six a bad guy!

It takes a real man to do all the stunts Santo did in his films, he even does a daring cliff dive in this one.

In a twist ending the girls take charge, rich asshole gets a well deserved spear in the gut!!

In another final twist, Santo celebrates with the girls and lets them get away with murder!!! Tune in Wednesday with Eegah!! who has a new pile of rare flicks to unwrap!

You guys make my week, without fail, with each and every new post on your wonderfully Psychotronically-inclined blog. I consider myself reasonably well-versed in all things relating to fleapit cinema, but Eegah! and Tabonga never fail to surprise and amaze. Also nice to hear WFMU's Bob Brainen give you the weekly shout-out on his Saturday show. Thanks, and keep up the fantastic stuff!

Lucha films are one of those categories I've read about ten times more than I've actually seen them (in spite of watching plenty of Spanish TV), and that includes these spy story ones. One exception is MISION SUICIDA, which seems to get a kind of bad rap even AMONG fans of these movies, even though I mainly liked it. Have you ever reviewed it?

Hi Grant, I thought we did, but, we haven't - I have it in my collection and will review it in upcoming months..
