Trivia

According to myth, Dennis Hopper required 85 retakes for one scene, causing director Henry Hathaway to yell at him, "You'll never work in this town again!" and that it was ten years before Hopper obtained another major role. Don Murray, however, has stated that this never occurred, and in fact, Hopper worked steadily through the 1960s, including twice more with Hathaway: The Sons of Katie Elder (1965) and True Grit (1969).

It was the first western I remember seeing with a complex plot.
3 April 2005 | by See all my reviews

It was a memorable film that i first saw on 'Saturday Night At the Movies" when I was 12 years old, (six years after it was released in 1958). Being raised on a diet of TV and movie westerns, 'From Hell to Texas' stood out from all of them; I identified with the lead and had a crush on Diane Varsi that lasted for years.

I saw this feature only one more time when I was 21, just before shipping out to Nam. This time I identified with the scope of the film and the depth of the characters. Chill Will gave a memorable performance definitely a cut above his typical side-kick comic relief roll, and I thought it interesting for a father to actually help his daughter's suitor in such a unstinting fashion. Opposite Wills was R.G. Armstrong and his son Dennis Hopper, though the heavies one could not really hate them. It was through these characters that it was easy to understand that it is not the person who is evil it is the deed. This film has always been in the back of my head and deep in my heart, for it stood out as having both action and a message. I hope it will be transferred to DVD soon. On memory alone I give it an '8'out of 10.
