Lash LaRue Whips It Good
18 October 2009 | by FightingWesternerSee all my reviews

When gold is discovered in a ghost town, a crooked attorney, town clerk, and a couple of vicious gunmen team up to lure the unsuspecting landowners and kill them, securing their deeds by forgery.

Investigating the disappearances is undercover federal Marshall Davis, better known as the Cheyenne Kid and his sidekick Fuzzy Jones.

This is a entertaining entry in Producers Releasing Corporation's Cheyenne Kid series starring Lash LaRue, with some good action scenes and a craftier than usual villain.

Al St. John gives good support with ample comic relief, definitely the best sidekick in the business.

Co-star Jennifer Holt was one of the most beautiful women of the Saturday matinée westerns, her best role being as the title heavy in The Hawk Of Powder River.
