Trivia

This film's earliest documented telecast took place in Tucson Thursday 13 September 1956 on KDWI (Channel 3); it first aired in Cincinnati Sunday 7 October 1956 on WKRC (Channel 12), in Portland OR Monday 7 January 1957 on KLOR (Channel 12), and in Columbus Tuesday 5 February 1957 on WTVN (Channel 6). At this time, color broadcasting was in its infancy, limited to only a small number of high rated programs, primarily on NBC and NBC affiliated stations, so these film showings were still in B&W. Most viewers were not offered the opportunity to see these films in their original Technicolor until several years later. In Honolulu it enjoyed its first colorcast Tuesday 30 January 1958 on KHVH (Channel 13); in Philadelphia it was first aired in B&W Tuesday 13 January 1959 on WFIL (Channel 6), and, after repeated B&W showings, finally offered a colorcast presentation Wednesday 20 July 1960.

Nefarious schemes in Texas
1 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

Warner Brothers answer to Crosby and Hope, Dennis Morgan and Jack Carson, star in Two Guys From Texas as a comedy team traveling through the Lone Star State when their car runs out of gas. A kind pair gives them a lift to Dorothy Malone's dude ranch and the boys are grateful. Of course that abandoned car out of gas later figures in some nefarious schemes.

Carson who enlivened many a Warner Brothers film in the 40s with his comic blowhard character is a man most afraid of anything that walks on four legs. Kind of ridiculous if you ask me, but Carson pulls off the Hope like gag.

And just like Crosby would want to cure his pal, Morgan seeks the help of visiting guest Dr. Fred Clark. All this leads to complications with Malone and another entertainer at the ranch Penny Edwards and the local sheriff Forrest Tucker. Not a good idea to make even a romantic rival of the sheriff.

Jule Styne and Sammy Cahn wrote the unmemorable but serviceable score which yielded no song hits for Morgan. For a man afraid of animals some of Carson's transformation is both miraculous and hysterical.

Like Bing and Bob, Dennis Morgan and Jack Carson both had considerable separate careers of their own. But their teaming yielded more than a few good laughs.
