El Azote, a masked outlaw with a bullwhip, is terrorizing the neightbourhood, robbing fold shipment after fold shipment - so the local bankers call in Marshal Lash (Lash La Rue) and his sidekick Fuzzy to investigate. But Lash and Fuzzy soon notice their arrival has been heavily promoted by the local newspaper, which means their secret investigations would no longer be secret, so they pretend to be outlaws who have found the marshals that were supposed to be coming (as in themselves) dead in the desert. Everybody buys their story, and soon enough, the local barowner Benson (Tom Neal) hires them - to lead his outlaw gang. His reasoning: Lash is to be the head of his gang disguised as El Azote, which makes sense inasmuch as Lash is as handy with the bullwhip as the masked outlaw. Benson figures that should lure El Azote out into the open - for whatever reason.

Lash and Fuzzy agree, and soon become the region's top outlaws, while at the same time seeing to it that noone's really hurt ... but then Benson finds out their real identity, while Lash and Fuzzy find out that Benson's gang isn't only siding them but also the real El Azote.

After much to and fro, everything culminates in a bullwhip-duel between Lash and El Azote, which Lash of course wins, to then unmask El Azote to be an ambitious young banker (Dennis Moore) of the region who wanted to rob all regional banks blind so he could form a sort of super-bank ...

Tex Cooper plays Buffalo Bill in the last few scenes of the movie to deliver the punchline to the film's running gag, but he isn't involved in any proceedings beforhand.

 

If you really think this film through, there are plenty of plotholes, and I also don't understand why the finale's bullwhip duel is also shown to accompany the movie's opening credits - but then again, the film moves along rather swiftly, there's lots of bullwhip action involved, Lash La Rue might not be the best actor but he's likeable, and Al St.John is a good sidekick without being moronic. Now sure, it's all done on the cheap, and nobody even tried to make this one a masterpiece ... but it's entertaining at least.
