5.0 out of 5 stars Truly One for The Collector/Lash fan, 29 Aug 2013

This review is from: Lash La Rue Collector's Set [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
I don't understand how this DVD set is so cheap!There are 12, Yes - 12 Lash films here from his later period, all produced and or directed by Ron Ormond (not the most obvious Western producer perhaps). The films are cheap and use lots of stock footage, but that never mattered to me back in the days, and doesn't now (much). The films are: DEAD MAN'S GOLD, MARK OF THE LASH, FRONTIER REVENGE, OUTLAW COUNTRY, SON OF BILLY THR KID, SON OF A BADMAN, and on Disc 2: DALTON'S WOMEN (surely the oddest, and it leaves a rather bad taste in the mouth, there is very long, totally unecessary fight between 2 women in a saloon, which really took me by surprise. Also it does suffer from lots of the stock footage.), KING OF THE BULLWHIP, (possibly the best?), THE THUNDERING TRAIL, THE VANISHING OUTPOST, THE BLACK LASH, THE FRONTIER PHANTOM. I am afraid I don't have it in me to review each film (they are pretty similar anyway). They all have good western support casts, and here's the real nub...There is no awful "Alpha"/Elstree Hill" type quality. These prints are good, not forgetting they are all well over5 50 years old and are probably better than when seen in the cinema. Obviously some are a bit better than others, but I assure you - You don't need to worry about quality. And the price...! Do get this if you are a Lash fan, or even if you just like the very "B" Western. Long live Fuzzy and Lash.

5.0 out of 5 stars LaRue lashes out justice in bargain collection, 7 Nov 2013

This review is from: Lash La Rue Collector's Set [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Lash LaRue wasn't the most well known of the screen's western heroes but he probably was the most original as he brandished justice with a bull whip along with his six guns. During the period 1945-52 he starred in a couple of dozen low budget quickies, with twelve of them in this collection. Accompanied by Al "Fuzzy" St. John as his comic sidekick (with antics learnt from the silent movie days when he was one of Mack Sennett's Keystone Kops), these westerns generally clocked in at under an hour and, to the delight of their original matinee audiences, were crammed with non-stop hard-hitting fights, shoot outs and chases. And, of course, Lash would frequently bring a villain to ground with a crack of his whip, this skill often outshining his acting ability.

With Ron Ormand juggling screenplay, producer and directorial duties, the plots were slim, secondary and regularly padded out with stock footage, none more apparent than in "The Last Outpost" which borrows sequences from earlier productions though "Dalton's Woman" appears to have been given a greater budget with a longer running time. (Unfortunately this film has a couple of sequences in the wrong running order). But whatever the films' merits, this is an unbeatable two disc bargain package with good quality picture restoration, though the sound is sometimes a little muffled. Well worth checking out by older cinemagoers wanting to revive old memories or younger folk keen to experience the more innocence age of western movies.

Value for money, very good quality. A return to the days of Saturday matinees. Any lovers of the old B western movies will enjoy the 12 hours plus of the rather tame (by current standards) punch ups but nevertheless all action where good beats bad in the end.
