Greedy land baron Kirby wants to drive small ranchers from the valley so he can own land rights to the railroad coming through. So small rancher Tom Grant sends for who else but the Cheyenne Kid to stop the land grab. Okay, the plot is not exactly original, but sidekick Fuzzy Jones, of all people, has a couple of clever tricks up his sleeve. Note that it's Fuzzy who gets the most screen time. I'm estimating that black-clad hero Lash is in only about one in four scenes, and I'm wondering why so few. His acting skills appear good enough. And he can certainly ride and throw punches with the best of the matinée heroes of the day. Plus, there's that trademark lash of the whip. But the odd fact is that Fuzzy alone carries much of the plot. Anyway, nothing exceptional in this 60-minute programmer, except a diverting look into how many of us 10-year olds spent our Saturday afternoons, lo, so many years ago.
