Critic Reviews for Terror in a Texas Town
Audience Reviews for Terror in a Texas Town
the oddest western i've seen since 'johnny guitar' and once again sterling hayden is featured. his committed performance as a swedish whaler is what keeps this film together, in spite of his pretty laughable accent. and that final scene, well what can we say? it's the only old west showdown with a whaling harpoon. you'll just have to see it for yourself. the last film from the low budget director of 'gun crazy' and 'the big combo' is really fun
REALLY good B western. Maybe the only film where Sterling Hayden smiles and definitely the only movie where a man brings a WHALE HARPOON to a gun fight. Great direction, editing and cinematography to boot!
A good little B-western. Swedish immigrant farmers in Hollywood westerns, usually called either Larson or just The Swede, are generally a bit too meek for their own good and over-reliant on the American gunslinger, e.g. John Wayne, to fight their battles for them. Though he's still a stereotype, it's nice to see Sterling Hayden's vengeful sailor kickin' ass for a change.
