Product Description

Sheriff John Higgins quits and goes into prospecting after he thinks he has killed his best friend in shooting it out with robbers. He encounters his dead buddy's sister and helps her run her ranch. Then she finds out about his past. Written by Ed Stephan {stephan@cc.wwu.edu}

Review

Synopsis: Believing he s killed his friend, a lawman (John Wayne) turns recluse, only to later become involved with his friend s daughter, and the true killers.

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

Bogged down by a tired plot, "Texas Terror" (1935) goes through the motions with precious little spark. John Wayne has little to do but punch the clock and hope for better things. Meanwhile, director Robert N. Bradbury keeps recycling the same Tom Steele script (the audience was probably too bored to notice). One of the Duke's worst "B" Westerns.

Texas Terror, 1934 film

The movie shows a small town and the Sheriff's office. One man drew out all his money to buy cattle (now that the rustlers are gone). [Is it safe to carry all that cash? Would a Letter of Credit be better?] Dan rides out of town. Three men plan a crime. A gunshot alarm the people of a robbery. Sheriff John pursues the robbers. They stop at a house; Dan is shot in the back! The wounded robber is given the cash so he can return to town. Planted cash incriminates Dan Matthews. Ed Williams is the replacement Sheriff. John becomes a prospector. He finds a wounded Indian and takes him back. [Note the beard and moustache.] Bess Mathews returns to her ranch. Five men attack the automobile and shoot the driver! John chases them an captures one! Now he is chased.

John places Bess in the automobile and drives fast. Bess tells the Sheriff what happened. John returns the express money to the Sheriff. He tells John Higgins to help Bess for Dan's sake. Aunt Martha will cook. John shows Bess the ranch. She will need hands to work the ranch. There is a dance at night. A woman gossips about John. The Martin boys pay with an old dollar, its serial number was part of the loot. John overhears a conversation between two men. Dixon tells Bess news about her father's death. She notices that ring on John! She follows John and sees him at that safe. There is a milking contest. Dixon takes Bess home. Those two men will be followed to find their leader. Bess talks to Higgins alone and accuses him of robbery and murder. "I never want to see you again!" John sees the Martin boys go into Dixon's house. We hear their plans. John follows Dixon out of town. He hears their plan for stealing horses.

John calls on Black Eagle for help.

Between 1933 and 1935 a young John Wayne starred in sixteen low budget westerns for Lone Star, a division of the poverty row Monogram studio. "Texas Terror," written and directed by Robert N. Bradbury in 1935, has a rather strange title given that the story emphasizes the romantic part more than is usual. Wayne plays Sheriff John Higgins who thinks that he has killed his best friend, Dan Matthews (Frank Ball) in a shootout with an outlaw gang. Higgins quits and becomes a prospector, which probably explains that attempt at a beard, but when he runs into Dan's sister, Beth (Lucile Browne), he does everything he can to help her run her ranch. Of course, she eventually finds out who he is and what he has done and does not know words vile enough to describe her contempt for him.
If you suspect that it is always darkest before the dawn and that our Hero learns the truth in time to get the bad guys and the girl (in that order), then you know your B Westerns. There are some decent chase sequences for the time and the genre, with the legendary stuntman Yakima Canutt doing all of the good stuff while doubling for Wayne and the various henchmen on horseback. You should be able to spot George Hayes as the sheriff and another well known stock player LeRoy Mason as bad guy Joe Dickson. "Texas Terror" is another above average Lone Star Western with Wayne actually given some different things to do this time around. Not of these oaters, all of which run less than an hour, are great and their value is more nostalgic than anything else, but fans of the Duke should check them out once in their life.

If this reviewer doesn't have all of the Duke's westerns- it isn't for the lack of trying. Also giving a heads up to personal bias: Have a large oil painting of the Duke (not a print, also have several of those), old photograph, several commemorative pocket watches, dozen collector Plates- a lot of Duke stuff from one of a 100 autobiography books to a roll of important paper with the Duke on it- so the reviewer thinks highly of the Duke.

This movie is from the '30's and a good one; having many of the same actors who Wayne carried from movie to movie. A habit of taking care of his friends that continued into the 1960's and '70's which have his arguably best westerns. This one has plenty of action, fist fights to gunsmoke with the Duke winning the day. Enough said without giving away a spoiler, Watch the movie, it's a good way to spend an hour of your time. davzway

These two films, "Texas Terror," and ""The Trail Beyond" are two great B-westerns starring a young John Wayne. I really enjoy these films. Sure they are not the best written or acted films in the world, but they are entertaining to a very high degree. Everyone should see how John Wayne started out in pictures and compare that to how he finished his career. This serves as inspiration to everyone that human beings can improve themselves to an immeasurable degree.
