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 ...

The man in black rides into the sunset
3 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Lash LaRue, the black clad whipslinger of the frontier stars in this sequel to his 1948 film "Frontier Revenge". Along with his grizzled sidekick Fuzzy, he chases down and captures a desperado whom he had jailed years before. Fuzzy mugs it up to fine comic effect.

Unfortunately, LaRue's films suffered from increasingly smaller budgets and too much stock footage.This movie demonstrates that unfortunate fact. Lash had the perfect tough guy persona and his use of the western bullwhip made this film series unique.

This movie is poorly produced when compared to the 1948 film...... Lash deserved better. After this, he tried his hand at TV.
