barely worth one's time and/or money
2 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

McCoy and his sidekick pursue a wealthy man, who eventually confesses responsibility for the death of McCoy's fellow Ranger, and who - during the movie - intimidates the locals, with the help of his son and cronies. Currently, a brother and sister are the main focus of the villain and his gang. Gold is probable on land that the siblings have partially paid Mr. Moneybags for. This makes him NOT want to complete the sale. To gather information about the bad guy, McCoy adopts the guise of a gambler and a miscreant, himself, known as The Phantom. In my opinion, most of these old, black-and-white westerns are pretty much the same - a few are real bad, and the vast majority are barely worth one's time and/or money. I think that Texas Wildcats is among the latter.
