When I was a kid the outdoor Western Parks were popular.Folks like Ken Maynard,Lulabelle & Scotty, Curly Bradly (radio's Tom Mix), Red Foley and so on performed there. I met "Fuzzy" and after the performance got to talk with him. He told me about Lash's expertise with that bull whip. It was not movie magic, but things he actually did with the whip.
Lash could take the cap off a soda bottle with it.According to Al St John,Lash was a real expert with the bull whip.
