Storyline

Marshal Clark sends Lash La Rue and Fuzzy Q. Jones to break up a gang of counterfeiters, led by Jim McCord, operating in a deserted village across the border. On the way, they chase off three outlaws in pursuit of a wagon carrying Frank Evans and his daughter Jane, who are trying to escape from the outlaw's hideout. Lash leaves Fuzzy to guard the buckboard while he escorts the Evans' to a friend's cabin, and returns to find Fuzzy missing and a note, signed by the Frontier Phantom, advising him to get out of the country. He returns to the cabin and also finds Evans and his daughter gone, but runs into the Frontier Phantom, who is his exact double and his long-lost twin brother. They fight, Lash wins and takes the Phantom's clothes and heads for the outlaw stronghold. There he finds Fuzzy has been made chief cook-and-bottle washer and janitor. McCord thinks there is something different about the Phantom and sends henchmen Turk and Buck to trail him. Lash gets rid of Buck, but Turk ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Not bad
29 September 2005 | by See all my reviews

Lash has a way of shooting from the hip. No aiming at the villains, just firing away at hip level. Amazing! His buddy " Fuzzy " is just great as the side kick - a character actor who really understood how to play second fiddle and yet be remembered as a character. Lots of fist fights and hard riding - light weight stuff but thoroughly enjoyable. Still have to chuckle at the shooting from the hip style - surprisingly accurate. He also has a pretty sharp horse - not as good as Tom Mix's " Tony " but good for standing on it's hind legs and riding hard. I remember Lash from the 1950's on TV but I'm not sure if it was from a TV series or old movie reruns. It was just fun to watch a couple of his old films again. Lash, by the way, is pressed pretty hard by Fuzzy - who is one of those thoroughly remember-able characters. It's like our current sitcoms - fun to watch - but not a good idea to attach current social values to - times and social values have changed. Hang loose and enjoy.
