Quite enjoyable western fare with two young superstars to be.William Holden and Glenn Ford are two young cowpokes making their way to Texas and competing for the same girl,played by Claire Trevor. Good support by veterans George Bancroft and Edgar Buchanan makes this a western worth watching. Holden has the showier part and makes the most of it.He's brash and likable and fits the part. Director George Marshall blends humor and drama the same way he did in his masterpiece DestryRides Again.Although Texas isn't in the same league as his previous masterpiece it is a damn good western.The west does really look wild and untamed in his movies.
