Not sure if this has been discussed before and if it has please point me to the correct thread.
I am currently watching Killer Kid which while set in Revolutionary Mexico could certainly pass for the Civil War era Spain. El Santo could be one of many of leaders of the Spanish Republic while the Mexican troops obviously resemble the forces of Fascism and Franco. The Killer Kid represents any one of numerous international groups who fought and died for the Republic. Now the question I want to ask is how did the government of Spain (Franco) think of the western being made in his country? I honestly have very little respect for the man and was he blind to any and all veiled criticism of his regime? Dictators aren’t the smartest men and I guessing the criticism went unnoticed.
