Star of Texas Details


Wayne Morris plays a Texas ranger who goes undercover to trap a criminal gang. Posing as a wanted killer, Morris is able to move freely amongst the town riffraff, unencumbered by the innocent ingenue (mainly because there is no innocent ingenue). The marshal learns that the brains behind the gang is a group of supposed respectable businessmen. Star of Texas was directed with verve by Thomas Carr, best known to modern viewers for his long association with the Superman TV series (Jack Larson, Superman's Jimmy Olsen, shows up in a supporting role). The film was one of a quartet of Wayne Morris vehicles produced in 1953-54 by Allied Artists, representing the last-ever Hollywood "B" western series. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
