One of over 100 Columbia features, mostly Westerns, sold to Hygo Television Films in the 1950s, which marketed them under the name of Gail Pictures; opening credits were redesigned, with some titles misspelled, the credit order of the players rearranged, some names misspelled, and new end titles attached, thus eliminating any evidence of their Columbia roots. Apparently, the original material was not retained in most of the cases, and the films have survived, even in the Sony library, only with these haphazardly created replacement opening and end credits.

In the 1953 re-release Wheeler Oakman's and Wallace MacDonald's names are combined as "Wheeler MacDonald" and Walter Brennan's name is misspelled "Brenan." See more »

The available version is probably from a television reissue of the late forties and does not have the original titles. All references to Columbia Pictures were removed from the print. See more »
Texas Grant (Tim McCoy) rides into a small town where he's immediately mistaken for a man named Rawlins who died years earlier. Pretty soon this mistake has people taking shots at his life so Texas must try and find out what happened to Rawlins.
Texas CYCLONE certainly isn't a masterpiece but it's a fairly entertaining "B" Western from the era when it seems like at least two of these were being released each week. This one here benefits from having a very familiar cast, which should keep film buffs glued to the screen.
The film is pretty much what you'd expect from a Western from this era. It clocks in at just a hour and features a rather routine story that leads to our hero being heroic and of course there are some nice shoot outs. The film benefits from McCoy's fine performance, although I must admit his constant "I must look like this fella Rawlins" got annoying. The supporting cast includes a young John Wayne and Walter Brennan as well as Vernon Dent who steals the show as the bartender.
