SynopsisTHE LAWLESS FRONTIER John Wayne
rides into a hotbed of intrigue involving a half-breed rustler (Earl Dwire
), a crooked sheriff (Jack Rockwell
) and a helpless heroine (Sheila Terry
). Our hero triumphs, of course, but not before the villain has tried to abduct the heroine and the sheriff has gotten away with one or two "legal" murders.
THE LUCKY TEXAN
Accused by the villains of murdering his best friend, John Wayne is exonerated when the "dead" man shows up in court to point the finger at the real would-be killers. The film winds up with a rousing chase on a gasoline-powered handcar, with Wayne duking it out with chief heavy Yakima Canutt (later the chief stunt coordinator on Big John's best films). Like all of the "Lone Star" Wayne Westerns, The Lucky Texan is crisply photographed by the great Archie J. Stout.
