Audience Reviews for The Texans


Ordinary western helped by two high quality supporting players, May Robson, full of vinegar and Walter Brennan all down home grit. Whenever they're on screen the picture is a lot of fun. The leads, Randolph Scott and Joan Bennett aren't bad just sort of colorless. Both have been much better elsewhere. Joan, blonde here, really seemed to come into her own a few years on when she switched to brunette it seemed to define her image and make her a more dominant player.
