The Texan

Most of the action centers in South America in a setting of rich Spanish ancestral life. The turn the story [based on A Double-Dyed Deceiver by O. Henry] takes is a wide one after the first reel, which devotes itself to the Llano Kid, wanted bandit, and some of his operations in the southwest.

Most of the action centers in South America in a setting of rich Spanish ancestral life. The turn the story [based on A Double-Dyed Deceiver by O. Henry] takes is a wide one after the first reel, which devotes itself to the Llano Kid, wanted bandit, and some of his operations in the southwest.

An agent of a rich widow in South America has been commissioned to find her long-lost son. Making a deal with the Llano Kid, who speaks Spanish and is possessed of Hispanic features sufficient to fool the rich widow below the Caribbean, the two set out on their strange deception for dough.

Fay Wray, as a cousin of the long-lost son, lends as pleasing a touch to both eye and ear. Gary Cooper is a great type as the Llano Kid. He turns in an A1 performance, registering by turn steely coldness, brutality, amazement, uneasiness and tenderness.
