I'm excited for Nacho Libre to be in theaters... Which reminded me of this movie poster I found for Santo Contra Cerebro de Mal, which means "Saint Against Bad Brain" or "Saint Against Brain of Evil."
According to IMDb, this 1961 flick was about "masked police agents," not wrestlers. And Joaquin Cordero was one of the most prolific and popular actors in Mexican cinema. And that's quite an accomplishment. *cough cough* Anyway, it still reminds me of Nacho Libre. Imagine if you could take a machine gun into the ring? It'd add a whole new element to wrestling.
