Crooked lawyer Steve Gentry (Douglas Fowley) has plans to take over the town and mines of Silver City from Jim Mason Frank Matts). He kills Mason in what looks like a mine accident, and then brings in Lil ('Ann Savage'), who produces a fake marriage certificate and takes over Mason's property as his widow. Preacher Henry Lane (Byron Foulger) attempts to arouse the townspeople to drive out Gentry, Lil and their cohorts and is beaten up by a couple of the Gentry henchmen. The Cisco Kid (Duncan Renaldo) and Pancho (Leo Carrillo) encounter the preacher, and head for Silver City. They subsequently reveal Gentry's machinations, and restore Silver City to the decent town it previously was. Written by Les Adams <>

Silver City is a "Savage" town
16 July 2004 | by (Flushing, NY) – See all my reviews

Cisco and Pancho come to the rescue of a preacher, who was run out of Silver City for protesting the bad influence that has come over the town. According to Preacher Lane, the town was run and owned by an honest man, but after he was killed in a mine cave in, a woman by the name of Lil came into town claiming to be his widow, and acquired all the holdings of Silver City. Lil however is only pretending to be the widow in order to help her accomplice, Gentry, make this a haven for gambling and other forms of ill-repute. Cisco and Pancho take it upon themselves to help clean up Silver City and uncover the wrong doings of Lil and Gentry. Okay Cisco entry, with enjoyable performances from the two leads, with nice fight scenes and stunt work. Savage gives a good performance as Lil, and Carleton as her "conscience" friend. Foulger is good as the preacher, but his character is written out of the movie in the second half. Gentry is decent as the main villain, but like many of the other Renaldo Cisco films, is that he is basically non-descript in his portrayal. The chase in the swampy marsh (where did this come from?) at the end slows down the film considerably, but its an enjoyable hour. Rating, based on B-westerns, 6.
