Storyline

Hammond, owner of the town's stagecoach line and a leading citizen, is opposed to Idaho becoming a state, and kills Randolph Meredith, owner of the town's newspaper, for endorsing it. Meredith's sister Barbara, expert with a bullwhip and pistol, dons a black costume and mask and becomes "The Black Whip", dealing a blow to Hammond and his gang each time they perform some heinous act in their efforts to keep the town, and their power over it, unchanged. Aided by government agent Vic Gordon, Barbara confronts Hammond in a final showdown just as the town votes on whether or not to accept statehood. Written by Doug Sederberg <vornoff@sonic.net>

Did You Know?

Trivia

The fact that Randolph Meredith has no bullet wounds on him when he returns to his sister's house to die is no mistake. Serials were heavily regulated in those days - the filmmakers were not even allowed to use blood packs, which would have made the shooting scenes more realistic. See more »

linda stirling as first female zorro
7 October 2007 | by (Hamilton OHIO) – See all my reviews

For someone who had dreams of being a college English teacher, Linda Stirling's reign as Republic Pictures Queen of Serials was indeed a detour. Reporting to work on the set of Zorro's Black Whip, she had trouble controlling her horse which nearly bowled over the set. She thought she had lost the job, but the studio asked her back because they appreciated her spunky spirit. She still continued to have trouble controlling the horse all through her career. She laughed about how the crew would have to come looking for her to find her sitting on the ground, with the horse grazing nearby. "They put makeup on my bruises and put me back on the horse again." Babe DeFreest of course did the majority of stuntwork for her in "Zorro's Black Whip." In comparison, she had to wear a skimpy leopard outfit in "The Tiger Woman" during the shooting in a cold January. That's why she seems to be gritting her teeth when she smiles. When "Zorro's Black Whip" was shot, it was in the hot summer months. The all black outfit she wore gave her a skin reaction which lasted for years. Such were the trials and tribulations of a movie serial actress.
