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>

Its not Zorro its the Black Whip
3 July 2008 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Zorro is gone and replaced by the Black Whip. Its 1880 something and one of the territories in the American west wants statehood to bring law and order but a band of outlaws doesn't want it. So the black whip rides to the rescue. At first its the publisher of the paper in disguise but when he dies his sister takes on the role. Good western serial and one of the few real action ones with a woman in the lead. Linda Sterling makes a dynamite action queen, even if she was doubled for most of the action. If there is a flaw it's that its that Republic was moving toward the machine like precision in the construction of their serials. The construction is Spartan and there is nothing extraneous anywhere so things can feel rather sparse. You can almost guess what the cliffhanger is going to be (especially if you've seen other serials since many are lifted from others in the Republic canon). Still its a very good serial, better if you aren't tearing through a great number in a short period them like I am.
