Storyline

Filled from front to back with stock footage from 1948's "Frontier Revenge", plus the addition of a new plot-line involving the same outlaw-gang leader from the 1948 film..."Deuce" Rago (as in Ace-Deuce-Trey)since the role names aren't shown on the film but are sure there in the press book and production sheets...the people who made the film are convinced his name was "Deuce" in both films. Anyway old D-E-U-C-E is back in Rhyolite, posing as a cattle dealer, as the head of a gang hijacking silver from the nearby mines, while also staging a few stock-footage holdups in order to pad the running time. This one tells us that Fuzzy Q. Jones, sidekick and assistant to U. S. Marshal Lash La Rue, hasn't heard from his pal for three months, knowns he is on a secret mission, and decides to join up with him sans an invitation. Lash is working undercover under the pretense of turning renegade. Fuzzy shows up and tells Lash that people think he has turned outlaw like his brother in "The Frontier ...

Deja Vu All Over Again
27 July 2013 | by (Ottawa, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

"The Black Lash" is supposed to be a sequel to the earlier "Frontier Revenge" (1948). In fact about 90% of the film is comprised of scenes lifted from the earlier film and others in the series.

Produced and directed by Ron Ormond, this was the last of the (1948-52) series and therefore more cheaply produced than most of the others.

The "plot" such as it is, has Lash and Fuzzy going after Rago (Ray Bennett) a baddie that they had sent up in the earlier film. Ormond used many of the same actors and scenes in both films. For example, Jim Bannon's role is lifted entirely from "Frontier Revenge"....and he receives no billing. Of the few "new" scenes shot specifically for this film there are a couple using a double for Bannon shot from behind.

Another quirk is the casting of Peggy Stewart as the heroine in the first film and as a saloon girl in the second, all while playing the same character and using much of her scenes from the first film.

At the beginning of the film we see the bank robbery sequence from "The Dalton's Women" where Tom Tyler and Bud Osborne can clearly be seen. Osborne by the way, plays the telegrapher in this one. Ormond also padded his running time with lengthy scenes of Lash and/or Fuzzy riding across the screen to and fro or chasing or being chased by the bad guys.

Although this film was shot on a shoestring budget, you have to give producer/director Ormond credit for turning out competent and entertaining little films, particularly the earlier ones in the series, with casts consisting of several familiar faces. It is unfortunate that the series had to end on this note.
