Audie Goes to Europe
10 September 2006 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Call me chauvinistic, but I really don't think Europeans ought to be doing westerns. Clint Eastwood being the exception, spaghetti westerns are the place where all good western stars go to end their careers. The western is the American original film genre and it ought to stay here.

I think that's what Audie Murphy probably felt after doing this one. Audie did so much better work over here in the states. The Texican has Audie as a fugitive down in Mexico who hears that his straight arrow brother has been killed in a gunfight. The brother was a newspaper editor who never even carried a gun, but was doing some journalistic exposes of town boss, Broderick Crawford.

Of course Audie's out for blood and I don't think I have to say any more, I'm sure you know how this one will go.

Broderick Crawford was the only other name player in this film from the USA and purportedly he was drunk most of the time making The Texican. Not that Crawford needed much excuse to drink, he was one of Hollywood's legendary tipplers. The story goes that Murphy watered down Crawford's liquor so that he could get through the day's shooting.

Sounds like a W.C. Fields routine, but I'm not sure Fields could have done much with The Texican.
