Watchable and pleasant.

"The Kid from Texas" is a pleasant B-movie starring Dennis O'Keefe of all people as a cowboy. William (O'Keefe) leaves his native Texas to hang with rich swells and play polo. But not surprisingly, the uncouth cowboy is way out of his element with these folks and the only reason he seems to stay is that he's smitten with Margo (Florence Rice). However, after making a fool of himself, he ends up hooking up with a Buffalo Bill-style wild west show...and now another lady has set her eyes on him. So what's going to happen next?

This movie is pleasant and the actors do their best. But it also is a movie that seems a bit improbable and silly to say the least. A nice time passer but not much more.
