Lash of the West
Lash LaRue was a popular B western star of the late Forties, dressing in black and cracking an 18 ft bullwhip. In the early Fifties, many of the former cowboy stars were going into television, either on a network show or hosting their own films. Buster Crabbe, who had been Lash's predecessor at PRC in the Forties, hosted a NYC TV show called "Buster's Buddies." Ray Crash Corrigan had his own TV show as well as operating the Corriganville movie ranch. Lash of the West was a 15 minute show where Lash talked about his grandfather who had been a famous marshal in the days of the West. There would be a fade out to clips from one of Lash's films. Filmed in 1953, it only ran a few months, and then re-appeared a few years later. Lash himself would go on to play a semi-regular part on the Wyatt Earp TV show as Sheriff Johnny Behan. After years of personal problems, Lash finally became an evangelist and became a popular guest at Western film conventions in the South. He also took a bit part in the TV remake of "Stagecoach" at the request of his former fans, Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson.
