(aka 'Vigilantes')

directed by George Marshall
USA 19


  In this rip-roaring blend of action, thrills and humor, William Holden (The Man From Colorado) and Glenn Ford (The Desperadoes, The Violent Men) star as Dan Thomas and Tod Ramsey, two saddle bums whose dream of making their fortune in the Lone Star state has gone seriously awry. So when the rough-and-tumble drifters witness a stagecoach holdup, they decide to rob the robbers and go their separate ways. By the time they meet again, however, the two friends discover that they’re not only in love with the same woman (Claire Trevor), but on opposite sides of the law as well. Filled with bare-knuckle brawls, necktie parties, cattle drives and shoot-‘em-ups, TEXAS is a "fast moving and quite entertaining" (The Motion Picture Guide) epic Western adventure.

There is some minor damage and dust showing on this image, but not enough to quibble over. It actually looks pretty sound with some film grain. Good gray levels and contrast overall is top-notch. Standard yellow subtitles, no extras and 12 chapters abound. For the price this is a good DVD. Holden and a young Ford (also teaming up in The Man From Colorado) carry this picture through respectability. out of
