Spy Lucha A-go-go

Mexican spy movies from the sixties are generally pretty weird, and Cazadores de Espias just may be the weirdest of them all. This 1969 effort, which stars the fabulous Maura Monti, sets its action in a combination go-go-club/wrestling arena, a situation that provides for lots of masked luchadores, shimmying go-go girls, ridiculously uniformed super-villains, spy hijinks and musical numbers by Mexican pop acts of the period. See my full review of Cazadores de Espias as Teleport City's Jet Set Cinema.
