Movie Info

Number 3 in John Wayne's "Lone Star" western series was the lively Lucky Texan. Co-starring with Wayne is George Hayes, here introducing his grizzled-sidekick character long before adopting the movie nickname "Gabby." Accused by the villains of murdering his best friend, Wayne is exonerated when the "dead" man shows up in court to point the finger at the real would-be killers. The film winds up with a rousing chase on a gasoline-powered handcar, with Wayne dukeing it out with chief heavy Yakima Canutt (later the chief stunt coordinator on Big John's best films). Like all of the "Lone Star" Wayne westerns, Lucky Texan is crisply photographer by the great Archie J. Stout.

Audience Reviews for Lucky Texan

Another vehicle to show off Wayne's size and strength. These are so short, the stories are too simple lacking suspense and intrigue. Worth a look though.
