When a land baron bullies local ranchers with a water tariff, Lash and Fuzzy put an end to his tyranny.

FRONTIER REVENGE
Lash has a tough new assignment—get in close with Deuce Rago, the ringleader of a group of troublemaking desperados.

On their way to break up a gang of counterfeiters, Lash and Fuzzy run into the infamous Frontier Phantom.

THE VANISHING OUTPOST
Lash comes to the rescue when a rowdy bar patron causes a disturbance, and he and Fuzzy are recruited to stick around to keep the peace.

THE BLACK LASH
Lash and his pal Fuzzy learn that their old nemesis, Deuce Rago, is out of jail and up to no good.

amazon lists a release date of May 2013 for availability of this DVD set, but I bought it yesterday at Kmart for only $7.50.

It's a great collection of 12 Lash Larue westerns of varying quality and entertainment value. Any fan of old black and white grade B westerns will probably enjoy a couple of these movies, especially the ones in which Lash resorts to using his bullwhip rather than his gun to fight the bad guys.

Lash Larue wasn't the best western film actor, or the best looking western hero. Some have commented he bears a resemblance to Humphrey Bogart. Maybe, but I think Lash wins out in the looks department if you're comparing the two! And many of his films are quite entertaining. His gimmick with the bullwhip in some of the films is what set him apart from other B western heroes.

As B westerns, some of the films on this DVD set are poverty row productions, with cheap interior sets and obvious in-studio backdrops for closeups of outdoor chase scenes. A big problem I've noticed in several films is the loud, racy and annoying musical accompaniment, which sometimes doesn't even fit the action onscreen, or lack of it, and becomes a distraction.

Echo Bridge/Platinum Disc usually finds the best available film sources for their DVDs (take a look at the fantastic quality, restored Hopalong Cassidy films on DVD from this same company).

In a 1975 episode of THE ROCKFORD FILES. "A MATERIAL DIFFERENCE," Rockford asks his friend Angel,"Are you trying to channel Lash Larue?" I wonder how many people recognized the reference.
Alfred "lash" Larue was an enigma. He would not tell his age or where he was born. He looked a little like Bogart and talked out the side of his mouth like a B movie gangster, yet he became a B western cowboy star from 1947-52. He played the hero but dressed all in black, rode a black horse and carried a black whip which he used to subdue outlaws. He had trouble with the law and alcohol, but worked some with an evangelist who called himself John 3:16. Wouldn't you like to see his identification cards?
Lash starred in 20 B westerns, the first 8 for PRC. PRC was a small studio known for its cheap production values. the remaining 12 were produced by Ron Ormond. Ormond's productions made PRC look like MGM. The collector's set here contains the 12 Ormond films. The first 6 were directed by Ray Taylor who directed the PRC films. He was an old hand at westerns, and OUTLAW COUNTRY is above average with a 70 minute running time, good cast, and decent production values. A small problem is a rough soundtrack for some of the films.
The second 6 were all directed by Ormond. Actually cut and paste would be more accurate. He shot a few minutes of new footage supplemented by many minutes of footage from the first 6. that is very confusing, if you see the first 6. KING OF THE BULLWHIP is probably the best, with Lash and the villain fighting with whips. One of the best things about all 20 of the films starring Lash is Al St. John as the sidekick, Fuzzy Q. Jones. He was a fine comic actor who started in silent films.
The 12 films in the set were some of the last B westerns produced.

I met Lash in the mid 1960's when he was at the Calgary Stampede. I got to see him in live action with his different sized bull whips and the tricks he had mastered. His western films were fun to watch. They were not to heavy in plot but taught excellent morals to the young people. The producers were not of the calibre as those at Republic or Monogram studios. These movies were well put together and Lash (Al) LaRue was a good actor. He was a spitting image of Bogey. A good series to have in a collectin of "B" westerns.

The Lash La Rue western series started at PRC, one of the more prolific B-movie distributors. It was discontinued when PRC went upscale as Eagle-Lion in 1948. Producer Ron Ormond continued the series at his bottom-of-the-barrel Western Adventures Productions until it died a pitiful death in 1952. This collection from Echo Bridge contains 12 of Lash's Western Adventures pictures from 1948 through 1952. They all follow the standard PRC western format with Lash as the tough hero and Al "Fuzzy" St. John as his comic sidekick. As the market for true B-westerns dried up in the late forties, the budgets for the La Rue westerns shrunk to the point that producer Ormond was shooting entries in less than a week and recycling action sequences from prior pictures. The results are fascinatingly bad movies with garbled story lines, mismatched scenes and characters apparently travelling back and forth in time. However, the bottom line is that Lash is always fun to watch (even when he can't get his lines out) and Fuzzy can be good when he is not forced to ad-lib his comedy routines. Echo Bridge assembled some good prints for this collection, but could have taken a little more care in mastering it. in "The Daltons' Women," for example; an entire reel is placed out of sequence. Still, this is a welcome collection of hard-to-find late B-westerns.
