This is for children
23 January 2005 | by roydmckSee all my reviews

I live between Canada and Mexico, I have therefore seen these movies on TV, and my friends have told me that these movies were made specifically for children and dim-witted adults, They lost audience in the 70's and by consequence discontinued, It is funny that in Mexico my friends 'children and grand children rather consider that these movies are more for mentally slow kids.

However every Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning Santo and other less famous'wrestlers movies are on the Mexican cable TV, so that leads me to affirm that they are targeted for children and old adults who used to watch them 40 years ago, one cannot avoid to look at them in order to remember the music, dresses, and B movie films of the 60's .
