Texas Terror is somewhat of a novelty among John Wayne s Lone Star westerns, for two reasons.
The first is mainstay George Gabby Hayes role. Where he usually plays a crotchety sidekick to the Duke s hero, here he plays more of a cool-headed mentor to Duke s character. It s a nice change of pace and proof that Hayes was more than a one-note performer.
The second, and more significant is that the climax features Wayne in a car chase! While this may not seem like that big a deal, it s odd enough to have cars in a western, but even odder considering you can probably count the number of John Wayne films with car-chases on your hand. Now granted, this isn t a true car chase as Wayne isn t chasing another car, but still, it s just plain weird seeing the Duke speed off in pursuit.
That said, Texas Terror is still a Lone Star production and suffers from the usual low budget, stilted acting, and weak leading lady, but for fans of the genre it s definitely worth a look. --franksmovielog.com
