Movie Info

Claudette Colbert makes a long-overdue entree into the Western genre in Texas Lady. Looking at least a decade younger than her 50 years, Ms. Colbert plays Prudence Webb, who arrives in the wide-open town of Fort Ralston, Texas, to assume control of her late father's newspaper. Her first major print crusade is aimed at gambler Chris Mooney (Barry Sullivan), whom Prudence holds responsible for her dad's suicide (Mooney isn't, but it takes our heroine nearly eight reels to find this out).

Audience Reviews for Texas Lady


Thia was Claudette's second to last theatrical feature and if this was the quality of scripts she was being offered at that time it's no wonder she stayed away six years between this and Parrish. First of all she belongs in some urbane urban setting not the Old West and try though she might she is out of place here. Additionally she and Barry Sullivan, always a dull leading man no matter his costar, go together like oil and water. The script is ordinary and the direction not terribly exciting plus the film is soft and fuzzy with overbright color. If you like Claudette or westerns it's okay but don't expect anything above the routine.

Super Reviewer

Certainly one of Claudette Colbert's most unmemorable movies, but her presence and professionalism in the film boost it up barely above average. Interesting plot concept not given a very good film treatment.
