Biography | show moreshow less
Alfred "Lash" LaRue (1917-1996), who was known as "King of the Bullwhip", introduced both the whip and the black outfit for which he became known in the 1945 film, Song of Old Wyoming. He had small roles in Eddie Dean westerns at PRC studios in the early 1940s. On the strength of his voluminous fan mail, he was elevated to his own starring series in 1946. Billed as "Lash" in honor of his skill with a 15-foot bullwhip, the actor played a black-clad do-gooder named Cheyenne, while his comic sidekick was Al "Fuzzy" St. John. From 1946-1952, LaRue starred in 26 westerns. In 1951, he headlined the 15-minute TV series Lash of the West, in which he would introduce and narrate clips from his earlier films.
