Viva Gaston Santos!
16 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

El Pantano De Las Animas (Ghost Swamp) When I was a young kid, I saw this movie, along with several others by the great bullfighter and actor Gaston Santos. I was living in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico at the time and I always enjoyed watching his movies and watching him bullfighting on top of his horse(s) at the old Plaza De Toros El Progreso.

In the late 1980's I purchased his movies in Chicago, Illinois and watched each one of them with my children and wife, whom is also from Mexico. My entire family enjoyed them almost as much as I did when I first saw them. Gaston Santos was a great role model for many Hispanic children. I wish there were more persons like Gaston now a days to provide this new "sophisticated" generation with legitimate role models to inspire and influence them as he did to my generation.

The issue is not whether or not the films were master pieces, rather, whether the moral of the stories had redeeming social value. I know they did because the messages of good against evil have remained in my life as a guiding light much like the similar messages in the Indiana Jones films have done for millions.
