Quotes

[first lines]
Fuzzy Q. Jones: Hey, here's an empty sack and here's a list of what to put in it.
Marshal Cheyenne Davis: Fuzzy, your list is just like a letter; it always starts out the same.
Fuzzy Q. Jones: Oh, you mean sort of, "Dear Sir"?
Marshal Cheyenne Davis: No - six plugs of chewin' tobacco.
Fuzzy Q. Jones: Well, I gotta have some kind of stimulant.
Marshal Cheyenne Davis: Don't I know you, you old buzzard. But if those hills come through with what I think they will, we'll both have all the stimulant we want. And it won't be tobacco.

Grade A 'B' western

When I found a free download of "Law of the Lash" I was happy. I had watched a movie of that title many years ago at a film festival in San Diego, and it was one of the most exciting movies I had ever seen.

There was lots of action, especially of Lash and his whip.

Watching it today, I discovered this film was not the same one. It has far less whip action, but there is an attention to detail by both director Ray Taylor and writer William L. Nolte that merits a very high rating.

Sound effects are also very good.

Al St. John was a great cowboy and probably the best of the intendedly funny side-kicks. Be sure to watch for him scratching his foot in this movie. His last scene, though, could have been edited out.

Lash LaRue actually could act, and he shows it here.

Perhaps most fascinating of all, everybody's favorite villain, Charles King, gets to play a good guy, a sheriff even!

So it's not "Gone With the Wind," it's a great 'B' western.
