El Santo (the Saint), was a Mexican Luchador Enmascarado (Spanish for masked professional wrestler), film actor, and folk icon. El Santo, along with Blue Demon & Mil Máscaras, is one of the most famous and iconic of all Mexican luchadores, and has been referred to as one of "the greatest legends in Mexican sports"
His wrestling career spanned nearly five decades, during which he became a folk hero and a symbol of justice for the common man through his appearances in comic books and movies.


El Santo....El enmascarado de plata.

El Santo es quizá el más famoso de los luchadores en Latinoamérica, y ha sido referido como "una leyenda" de este deporte en México. Su carrera en la lucha libre duró casi cuatro décadas, durante las cuales se convirtió en un héroe popular y un símbolo de la justicia para el hombre común ya que su personaje trascendió el ámbito de la lucha libre y se transformó en una especie de sú;per héroe al protagonizar historietas (comics) y películas.

"El Santo y Blue Demon contra los Monstrous" is one of the best things I've watched in a long time.

Ah, lucha. My love for technicos is without limit. I can't watch those movies without eating something with cheese. All the dangers in the world: be they monsters, mad scientists, or mobsters (the three 'm's!) suffer equally from a well executed grapple and lock. Storytelling like God intended.

Admittedly, my first exposure to the character was an episode of Mystery Science Theatre 3000 , where one of his films was shown, albeit dubbed in English and retitled Samson Vs. The Vampire Women.

Sure, Batman's fought a vampire or two, but El Santo did it without any fancy toys.

Excelente trabajo. A veces aún pasan sus películas, ésas en blanco y negro. Es realmente un símbolo, como mencionaste, bastante mexicano pero aplicable a toda Latinoamérica en general.

Those monsters are doomed.
El Santo will take them all down.

Admittedly the vampire lady is hot but, hey, if she's bad she's going down.

El Santo won't stand idle in the presence of evil.
