Our Score
This is an inferior remake of King Vidor's splendid 1936 western The Texas Rangers, in which three outlaw pals go their separate ways, with two becoming lawmen and ending up chasing the third. Nevertheless, there is a fine star-making performance from a deceptively casual William Holden, whose burgeoning screen presence demands attention, especially when dull co-star Macdonald Carey is on screen. The stunning Technicolor photography is by Ray Rennahan, an Oscar winner for Blood and Sand and Gone with the Wind.


Three bandits go their separate ways and, while two decide to turn over a new leaf and become Texas Rangers, the third stays firmly on the opposite side of the law. Western, starring William Holden. William Bendix, Macdonald Carey and Mona Freeman.
