Storyline

Texas, 1878: cheerful outlaw-buddies Jim, Lorn and Wahoo rescue spunky orphan Rannie Carter from rustling racketeers, then are forced to separate. Lorn goes on to bigger and better robberies, while Jim and Wahoo are (at first reluctantly) maneuvered into joining the Texas Rangers. For friendship's sake, the three try to keep out of direct conflict, but a showdown begins to look inevitable. And Rannie, now grown into lovely young womanhood, must choose between Lorn and Jim.

Texas Rangers (1936) was good, this one is better...
17 August 2012 | by (S. Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Color made a big difference in the forties, it would become essential for most of the A westerns that would be made in the fifties. Streets of Laredo has color going for it, it also has two of the ideal actors for westerns, William Holden and Macdonald Carey. Mona Freeman has the looks, but is very stiff in her role. The famous Victor Young does the musical score and the song "Streets of Laredo" is only played by the orchestra as background music, although another song by the same name is performed by a woman. The story is the same as "The Texas Rangers"(1936), about three outlaws, two of which become by circumstances Texas Rangers. Thy go through quite a conflict of loyalties between the rangers and their outlaw friend.(MacDonald Carey). Even though I liked the 1936 version I prefer this one, mainly because of Holden and Carey, and also for the fact the colors and the action scenes are excellent. A good western that can still be watched today with great pleasure.
