      Steve D FANTASTIC cast but sadly with a script as clever as its name. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/20/24 Full Review deke p I'm rating it higher than most on RT, cuz of the young future Stars, and the humor, and the plot, but most of all cuz 1941 & a good fun oater of that period. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Very entertaining! Young William Holden (23) is adorable with floppy, almost sandy-colored hair and long chops. He plays the lovable but very bad boy (organized crime in the old west), while a pre-Gilda Glenn Ford plays the all around honest good guy. And they're both in love with the same girl (Claire Trevor). The boxing scene is quite comical. After Holden's character is knocked out about 36 times, he's hit with a bucket of water, comes to and asks, "Why haven't they started the fight yet." Cattle rustling, a buddy friendship, and romance make this a fun movie to watch. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review ashley h Texas is an excellent film. It is about two young men who head west in search of fortune and adventure. William Holden and Glenn Ford give amazing performances. The screenplay is well written. George Marshall did a great job directing this movie. I enjoyed watching this motion picture because of the adventure. Texas is a must see. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Solid little western about two friend on opposite sides of of the law and love. William Holden plays a rancher and Glenn Ford plays his buddy who's a rustler, and both are vying for the affections of Claire Trevor. Nothing revolutionary, but it's a better than average wester, largely thanks to Holden and Ford. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member The freshness and vibrancy of Texas sees it home--A must for those who enjoy westerns!!
