Movie Reviews

John Wayne has some trouble getting the gal in this one
Lawrance M. Bernabo | The Zenith City, Duluth, Minnesota | 06/15/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Between 1933 and 1935 a young John Wayne starred in sixteen low budget westerns for Lone Star, a division of the poverty row Monogram studio. "Texas Terror," written and directed by Robert N. Bradbury in 1935, has a rather strange title given that the story emphasizes the romantic part more than is usual. Wayne plays Sheriff John Higgins who thinks that he has killed his best friend, Dan Matthews (Frank Ball) in a shootout with an outlaw gang. Higgins quits and becomes a prospector, which probably explains that attempt at a beard, but when he runs into Dan's sister, Beth (Lucile Browne), he does everything he can to help her run her ranch. Of course, she eventually finds out who he is and what he has done and does not know words vile enough to describe her contempt for him.If you suspect that it is always darkest before the dawn and that our Hero learns the truth in time to get the bad guys and the girl (in that order), then you know your B Westerns. There are some decent chase sequences for the time and the genre, with the legendary stuntman Yakima Canutt doing all of the good stuff while doubling for Wayne and the various henchmen on horseback. You should be able to spot George Hayes as the sheriff and another well known stock player LeRoy Mason as bad guy Joe Dickson. "Texas Terror" is another above average Lone Star Western with Wayne actually given some different things to do this time around. Not of these oaters, all of which run less than an hour, are great and their value is more nostalgic than anything else, but fans of the Duke should check them out once in their life."
