The Man From Texas (1948)
The Man From Texas
Directed by Leigh Jason
Cast: James Craig, Lynn Bari, Johnny Johnston
James Craig is torn between his criminal career as the masked bandit named the ‘El Paso Kid’, and the life of a law-abiding citizen with his long-suffering wife Zoe (Bari). Throughout the film he tells his wife “just one more time”, but is unable to stop, angering Zoe greatly. However, he does have brief moments of heroics when he helps the Widow Weeks (Merkel) save her farm. This was Eagle-Lion Studios first ‘big-budget’ film.
