Trivia

One of over a hundred Columbia features, mostly Westerns, sold to Hygo Television Films in the 1950s, who marketed them under the name of Gail Pictures; opening credits were redesigned, with some titles misspelled, the credit order of the players rearranged, some names misspelled, and new end titles attached, thus eliminating any evidence of their Columbia roots. Apparently, the original material was not retained in most of the cases, and the films have survived, even in the Sony library, only with these haphazardly created replacement opening and end credits.

Utah Becker: Say listen you. Whatever your name is. You've imposed on this town long enough. And you been doing a lot of talking when you had a gun to back up your play. Now I'm sayin' something - this town ain't big enough to hold the two of us
'Texas' Grant: Well then maybe you better be leaving, Becker
Utah Becker: I ain't a-leavin'. I'm a-callin' your bluff.
'Texas' Grant: Just how?
Utah Becker: I'll be waitin' for ya in my saloon at four o'clock. Alone. And if you're a man, you'll meet me there. Alone.
'Texas' Grant: I'll be there
Utah Becker: I'll be a-waiting. And come a-shootin'!

Tim McCoy Comes Back to Town and Pretends to be himself
21 March 2007 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

I agree with the previous reviewer, if you can accept a very silly premise that a man could look and talk so much like a missing rancher who's from the town he rides into than you will enjoy Texas Cyclone. And of course you can see John Wayne in support of another cowboy hero Tim McCoy.

During this short stint with Columbia Pictures Wayne did two films with Tim McCoy. Both are directed by D. Ross Lederman, both written by William Coit McDonald, and both had a whole lot of the same cast members.

Repeating his role as villain is Wheeler Oakman and John Wayne is once again a cowhand, the only one it turns out who's honest and employed by Tim McCoy's 'widow' played by Sheila Terry. We also have for the first time Walter Brennan and John Wayne working in the same film. Brennan is the sheriff and he's made up to be quite a bit older than he was at the time. This may have been the beginning of all those old codger roles that Brennan played right up to when he was one.

Of course McCoy finds that Oakman is still up to no good just like when he left and he has to deal with all the problems Oakman is causing. With John Wayne's help all things are righted in the end and the reason for McCoy's absence is explained in a very typical movie fashion.

If it wasn't such a silly plot premise, I'd give the film a notch or two higher a rating. It's not bad for a B film and the young Duke is shown to great advantage here.
