Lash & Fuzzy vs. the Gold Thieves
28 May 2006 | by (Rego Park, NY) – See all my reviews

Conway and his criminals steal a letter from the stagecoach concerning an assay report of a mine worked on by Thornton. Lash and Fuzzy arrive in Gold Valley to help Thornton and his niece June, but later find Thornton dead and their only clue is Thornton's foreman Quirt. Lash goes after Conway, Quirt, and their cronies, but deduce that they are working for someone higher up. Lash and Fuzzy then set a trap to capture the killers and unmask the mastermind. This film marks the first for Lash w/ Ron Ormond, which are at times superior to his days at PRC. The head villain of the piece is simple to figure out since there is only one suspect and the plot is pretty much straight forward, but there is plenty of good fist fights and whip use by Lash. The best is at the beginning when Lash whips and lassos a shot glass from a henchman's hand and Fuzzy comments that Lash is slipping since a few drops were spilled. Rating, based on B westerns, 7.
