Samson (Santo, Rodolfo Guzmán Huerta) is about to be demasked on the orders of Tandra (Ofelia Montesco) in SAMSON VS THE VAMPIRE WOMEN

The Santo films were sold as 'Samson' films early on probably to capitalize with the many PEPLUM films released in the early 1960s. One of the only four 52 Santo films dubbed into English. SANTO VS THE MARTIAN INVASION, believe it or not, is one of the most PEPLUM-like of the series. Fun escapist stuff.

Did they ever succeed in unmasking him? I heard that when you unmasked a mexican wrestler he instantly shrivels up into a three-foot dwarf and frantically runs away through the nearest door, but I might be wrong about that.

It looks like they are having some trouble loosening the mask.

In this film, no. The sun starts shining inside the room scaring off the vampires
