Storyline

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 <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Oh Cisco! Oh Pancho!
21 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

"Satan's Cradle" is a routine entry in the Cisco Kid series starring Duncan Renaldo as Cisco and Leo Carillo as Pancho.

The story has Cisco and Pancho finding Reverand Lane (Byron Foulger) dazed and wandering in the desert. They find out that the Reverand was trying to turn the townsfolk against the gang that has moved in and taken over the town. Saloon girl Lil (Ann Savage) is posing as the widow of a murdered respected townsman. Steve Gentry (Douglas Fowley) is her ally. When Lil begins to fall for Cisco, Gentry makes a move to take over. Needless to say, Cisco and Pancho straighten matters out before they ride off into the sunset.

The best part of the Cisco Kid series is listening to Carillo twist murder the English language. Apparently he also ad-libbed many of these lines.

The feature is teamed up on DVD with "The Daring Cabellero" (1949) and a circa 1975 press conference featuring Renaldo and Col. Tim McCoy discussing their careers.
