Quotes

[Squint gets the drop on Tex]
Squint Palmer: Get up your hands, you double-crosser. So, it wasn't enough for you to mess up our little surprise party and beat me out of first place money in all the rodeo events, but you had to steal my girl, too.
Carmen Serano: But, Squint, he...
Squint Palmer: Shut up, Carmen! All right, you guitar-playin' songbird, if you got anything to say, say it fast, then, when you're through, I'm going to shoot you right between the eyes and they'll call it justifiable homicide!

Who Stole From Who
14 May 2014 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Trouble In Texas finds Tex Ritter and sidekick Horace Murphy on the trail of a gang that is killing rodeo champions. The mistake that this gang headed by Earl Dwire makes is in killing Ritter's brother. He and Murphy have been on the trail for five years.

Devotees of the B western will find that a lot of usual players like Glenn Strange and Yakima Canutt are there. But if Trouble In Texas has any reason to be saved it is because one Rita Cansino who was the leading lady. All of 19 Ms. Cansino was playing a government agent who was also on the trail of the outlaws.

Of course we all know her better as Rita Hayworth so fans of the eternal Cover Girl will have a great opportunity to see her cowgirl attire.

There was a John Wayne B film from the Thirties where the same gambit was used to kill the rodeo cowboys. I can't remember which one so I don't know who stole from who.
