Description by OLDIES.com:
With his trademark bullwhip in tow, Lash LaRue first gained notoriety as The Cheyenne Kid, a character he portrayed in support of Eddie Dean in several PRC westerns. Law of the Lash was the first of eight PRC films to star LaRue as Cheyenne, which would find him paired with comic sidekick Al "Fuzzy" St. John. After the demise of PRC, LaRue and Fuzzy carried on with a series of films for Western Adventure Productions, which found the whip-wielding star reprising the same basic character, with the name Cheyenne Davis being discarded in favor of the Marshal Lash LaRue moniker.
Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 156 ratings.
Lash LaRue beats the bad guys with a whip that's faster than a quick draw. Dressed all in black and wearing a rather odd hat, LaRue walks off in the final scene with the daughter of the owner of the general store. Pay attention when Al Fuzzy St John's on screen; he saves the film!
Lash LaRue may not be remembered today as well as Roy Rogers, Hopalong Cassidy or Gene Autry, but in his day he was a major B-Western force. Lash LaRue and the Durango Kid films of the 40's probably kept the genre alive. After a contract dispute Buster Crabbe left the studio that was producing the wonderful "Billy the Kid" series. The studio simply replaced him with a new actor and new character. Fuzzy St. John had been Buster's sidekick and stayed on as LaRue's. The series brought in all the great elements of the old westerns, with the new twist that the hero relied on his whip as much as he did on his six-shooter. This is a great introduction to the series. Hopefully more will be coming.
