Superb job all around

"VCI has done a superb job all the way around. Wonderful transfer and picture quality for the Cisco films that, until today, was only available on VHS in poor quality transfers.
Recommend the Cisco book from the University Press by Francis M. Nevins as a companion piece."
Cisco Kid, the Hispanic model for America

"This review is for VCI's THE CISCO KID Double feature, starring Duncan Renaldo and Leo Carrillo. This entertaining double feature DVD is published by VCI and formatted for worldwide distribution (Region 0), which means it will play anywhere in the world.
The two movies are:
"Satan's Cradle", 1948, where Cisco comes to the aid of a preacher who was beaten up and left in the desert to die after denouncing the evil elements of Silver City. The murderous gang is led by a widow woman and Cisco has to use all his canning and charm to defeat her and restore law and order.
The second feature is "The Daring Caballero" - 1949. Cisco and Pancho rescue a young boy's father who is about to be hanged for a murder he did not commit. Since time is running out, Cisco has but one night to uncover evidence that the man is innocent and expose the culprits.
Though not restored, both films are in a fair to good state, and play well, without jumps, missing frames, or annoying scratches.
The DVD also includes a Photo and Poster Gallery, biographies of Duncan Renaldo and Leo Carrillo plus an interview with Colonel Tim McCoy and Duncan Renaldo where they relive the days when they were top western stars and felt responsible for presenting a wholesome role model for youngsters."
