    Lloyd Ingraham is in studio records/casting call lists playing the role of "Dan Matthews," but that role was played by Frank Ball. Ingraham was not seen in the movie. Buffalo Bill Jr. (Jay Wilsey) is listed playing the role of "Chief Black Eagle," but he played "Blackie Martin" instead. The actor playing "Chief Black Eagle" has not been identified. Yakima Canutt is listed in the cast, but he was a stunt performer and not seen in the movie.

    Studio records state that the sound was produced by the Balsley and Phillips Sound System, but it is not stated in the print.

    George Hayes alternates his speech in different scenes,
    taking on the speech characteristics of "Gabby" and his natural voice

  • Texas Terror is a 1935 American romantic Western film starring
    John Wayne and Lucile Brown, and directed by Robert N. Bradbury.

    I am biased towards, these Lone Star films.
    I enjoy all of them, for all their whirlwind, few days, low budget filming,
    they are a joy, and fun to watch.

    Duke, as John Higgins, thought he'd killed his best friend,
    turns in his Sheriffs badge, and becomes a prospector.
    It's strange seeing Duke in this one, looking scruffy, with a beard, and down and out.
    Duke puts in a good turn, in this above average oater.
    His love interest is Lucille Brown, who did a couple with Duke.
    Gabby Hayes, was brilliant as ever.

    There is a rare appearance of Buffalo Bill Jr.
    Bill had grown up in Wyoming, and was an expert at riding bucking horse.
    He had a knack for doing the crouper mount, where he vaulted over the
    horses rear,turned, and rode backwards in the saddle.

    Yakima Canutt said,


    That was a good gag, when you're supposed to be making a getaway, out of town.

    I agree entirely, another, sturdy effort by the Duke,

  • Hi Keith,
    I enjoy your comments. This one is one of my favorite from the Lone Star movies, but to say truth I like all that I had a chance to watch.
