Who was that masked man ?????/
23 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This low-budget oater from the King Of The Western Bull-whip was actually better than I had anticipated. In this film, Lash and his lanky sidekick Fuzzy are on the trail of a mysterious masked bandit ---- and mysteriously receive little or no help from the local lawman.

Lash LaRue had a limited acting range, but was likable, photogenic and pretty accomplished with the whip. The writing was fairly basic, but convincing. This film held few surprises, but was a satisfying example of the kind of matinée fare he specialized in. Fuzzy St. John is pretty funny here, in a stooge-like way.

Fans of the black-clad whip-slinger will like this one .... I did.
