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>

You don't pick on the preacher
13 May 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

On the way to Silver City, Cisco and Pancho find Byron Foulger unconscious in the desert without food or water. Seems as though he was run out of town by the powers that be for speaking out against them. As it is he was not allowed to set up a church.

In 1949 America this was considered sacrilegious so this warranted investigation. Silver City was founded by a kind and benevolent sort who died in a mine cave in. After that Ann Savage arrived with her friend Claire Carleton and a bottom feeding shyster lawyer played by Douglas Fowley. They turn the place into a sin driven cesspool.

As you can imagine Duncan Renaldo and Leo Carrillo being the caballeros they are wrongs are righted and justice triumphs in the end. And Savage turns out not to be as evil as originally thought.

Renaldo and Carrillo would soon be taking the Cisco Kid to television. As it is Satan's Cradle plays like an extended version of one of their half hour episodes.
