Audie Murphy seeks out the killer of his brother, but evidence is hard to come by
8 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Filmed in Spain, "The Texican" is a "mild" spaghetti western. The locations take advantage of the desert, ravines and hills of Spain. The music is of the spaghetti type, giving us nice themes. Yet it is told and directed, for the most part, like an American western. The exception is a dusty confrontation near the end.

Audie Murphy, once a lawman, has taken refuge in Mexico due to a past difficulty. He has vowed never to return, but when he hears that his brother has been killed in a gunfight, he reneges because he knows his brother doesn't believe in guns.

He returns to Rimrock where he confronts Broderick Crawford, the local business baron. But Crawford won't fight him. Murphy has to find evidence, and that's very difficult.

The story is told in a seemingly aimless and disconnected way, as Murphy moves around, alternately befriending some characters and rubbing against and rubbing out others, like Crawford's henchmen. It makes for interesting story-telling, with Murphy being quite frustrated. Only gradually does his detective work emerge as the connecting plot line. Westerns are usually less direct and linear in their stories, as the main character moves around and meets various people, and this is no exception.

"The Texican" is a solid western and another good Audie Murphy entry. In this one, he's a crack shot. He's not afraid to go up against 3 gunslingers at once. His fisticuff skills are equally sharp. Crawford could handle the heavy role blindfolded.
