The three titles you picked up are probably the most enjoyable Santo flicks there are... Good choices!

I'd swap out Monsters for Santo vs La Hija de Frankenstein.

Since I'm fond of those female army spy stories, one of the odder ones I like is MISION SUICIDA, which has a very entertaining one. (It's also one of those "Fourth Reich" spy stories, which is a "cherished" category with people.)

Another one I'm fond of is LEYENDAS MACABRAS DE LA COLONIA. It's been criticized for being a time travel story that hardly gives the time travelers anything to actually do in the story, but it's entertaining, and luckily it has Lorena Velasquez.

Speaking of spy movies, Operacion 67 is one of the better Santo movies. I'd also add to my favorites:

Santo contra las mujeres vampiro
Santo en el museo de cera
Santo en Atacan las brujas
Santo en el hacha diabólica
Santo y Blue Demon contra los monstruos
Las momias de Guanajuato
Santo contra la hija de Frankenstein
Santo contra los secuestradores (w/ Rossy Mendoza(!)
Santo en el Misterio en las Bermudas (w/ Mil Mascaras and a mythic finish)

Beg to differ. How can you not enjoy vampires who actually run around flapping their capes? Good wrasslin', vampire women, werewolf faced wrestlers, convertible sports cars... and who the heck needs a stake when you have a torch? Some days this one is is darn near perfection.
