Product Description

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 lovewith the same woman (Claire Trevor, The Stranger Wore A Gun), 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Why I like this DVD 17 Mar 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Here we see youthful Glenn Ford and William Holden, absolutely adorable and quite different from their mature image. A very exciting, fast moving story evoking life in old Texas and the wildness and joy of youth. Super photography and action sequences, showing off their riding skills etc.

It's 1866, Abilene, Kansas and we are in the company of Dan Thomas {William Holden} and Tod Ramsey {Glen Ford}, two pals who served in the Confederacy together. They want to get to Texas to earn their living but have no cash ready to hand. But a lifeline is thrown by way of a stagecoach robbery they witness as they decide to relieve the robbers of their ill gotten gains. This puts the friends in serious peril so they agree to split up and head in different directions. Finally meeting up some time down the line in town, both men are operating from different social standings. And both men have fallen for the same gal, Mike King {Claire Trevor}. So along with the arrival in town of shady railroad magnate Windy Miller {George Bancroft} and the crooked dealings of dentist Buford Ford {Edgar Buchanan} starting to influence matters; the boys will do well to come out of it all still as friends.

Texas is directed by George Marshall {with Norman Deming assisting} and the three writing credits go to Michael Blankfort, Lewis Meltzer & Horace McCoy. It's a briskly paced black & white action Western that's not short on laughs either. In Holden and Ford it showcases two Hollywood big hitters in their fresh faced early days, with Holden pretty much unrecognisable. From a quite hilarious pugilist rules boxing match in the first quarter, to the number of machismo exchanges that drop in from time time, it's one of those film's that's hard to criticise. So I'm not going too. A small bother comes with the ending being rushed a touch, but even that is in keeping with how Marshall has directed it. So really it's a hearty recommend to anyone after some early 40s Oater enjoyment. Undemanding for sure, but executed with gusto and no little amount of class. 6.5/10

Typical John Ford style mix of slap-stick comedy, fisty-cuffs and action make this an above average western. Fascinating to see the young William Holden and Glenn Ford. I hardly recognized them. Recommended.

Columbia Pictures presents "TEXAS" (1941) (93 min/B&W) -- Starring: William Holden, Glenn Ford, Claire Trevor, George Bancroft & Edgar Buchanan

Directed by George Marshall

Dan Thomas (William Holden) and Tod Ramsey (Glenn Ford) are ex-Confederate soldiers who get into trouble in a wide-open Texas town. The two split up, whereupon Tod takes a job on Dusty King's ranch; by and by, he falls in love with Dusty's daughter `Mike' (Claire Trevor). Meanwhile, Dan has joined a gang of rustlers headed by town dentist Buford 'Doc' Thorpe (Edgar Buchanan). Dan & Tod confront each other when the former tries to steal the cattle that Tod is driving to Abilene. Complicating matters is the fact that Dan, too, carries a torch for `Mike'. Though Packed with action and suspense and at the helm is slapstick comedy veteran George Marshall!

Columbia Pictures' sort-of-follow-up to Arizona (1940) which also starred William Holden.

Special footnote: -- As was often the case during his career, Holden shaved his chest before appearing, shirtless, in this movie's prizefighting sequence.

A good quality film of its time. Perhaps far true likeness of characters and the scenery of the time; moreso than modern films where there is no interest in presenting a good film.
