Mexican Wrestling Movies - El Santo

I am not sure how many people know this but Mexican wrestling movies wery very popular in the 1960's and 1970's and spawned their own genre in that region. Most of them are quite silly and feature action that is best suited for six year olds but they all have their own charm that have developed a surprisingly large following here in the states (and abroad).

The Films Of Santo - a compreshensive website with a listing of all Santo films with reviews. Highly recommended. Link

wiki - the wikipedia entry is a nice place to start. Link

Santo Street - a magazine devoted to Santo. I am not sure if this is still in publication and I have only seen an issue or two so I can't vouch for quality or anything else. Link
