Africa – Texas Style is a slick and exceptionally well-turned-out piece of adventure picture-making, its title the only weight of heaviness about it.

Shot entirely in Kenya, director Andrew Marton, scripter Andy White and cameraman Paul Beeson have thoroughly caught feeling of Africa. They make effective use of the terrain as an atmospheric setting and thousands of animals of all descriptions to lend authenticity.

Story twirls about the subject of game ranching, the domestication and breeding of wild animal life as a potentially huge source of meat and as a means of preserving many of Africa’s rapidly vanishing species of wild beasts.

Premise is given punch via its human story of rancher John Mills importing Texas cowboys Hugh O’Brian and his Navajo pal Tom Nardini to rope and corral as many animals as they can ride down.
