This filmography is listed by the year in which production began, which is the standard way of dating Mexican films (thus, a film which started shooting on 31 December 1968 is a "1968 film" in this system). Release dates and copyright dates on films may therefore differ from the dates below. Clicking on a hot-linked title will take you to a synopsis of that film.


1958: 1961: 1962: 1963:
1964: 1965: 1966: 1968: 1969: 1970: 1971:
1972: 1973: 1974: 1975:

How do I find these films?

You can try some of the sources on my Video/Poster Page, both for pre-records and (some of the private individuals) for tapes taken from TV broadcasts.

Here are some companies which currently are selling pre-recorded Santo tapes and/or DVDs--

By the way, I am still personally looking for copies of MISION SECRETA EN EL CARIBE (the Spanish version).
