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>

6 May 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This Lash LaRue western finds him and his trusty deputy Al St.John on a particularly dangerous assignment, going into a stretch of country where there's no law and order and the outlaws run things. In order to get the assignment LaRue and St.John have to have some kind of gauntlet initiation where they have to get past some tough deputies. Kind of stupid if you ask me.

Of more concern is the fact that Lash's outlaw brother is operating in this area and he's known as the Frontier Phantom. There's also a fifth columnist in the forces of law and order giving good intelligence to the outlaw leaders.

This western is really on the cheap. But Lash LaRue fans who like to see him whip up the bullwhip will like it.
