Texas Bad Man
Wayne Morris’ B-western series was the last of its kind to be produced in Hollywood. Texas Bad Man casts Morris as a sheriff who happens to be the son of inveterate thief Frank Ferguson. Knowing full well that Ferguson’s gang intends to steal a shipment of gold, Morris must stay up nights trying to second-guess his crafty dad. While there’s no shortage of action, the resolution to the story relies more on brawn than brain. Western “regulars” Sheb Wooley, Myron Healey and Denver Pyle do their usual in secondary roles, as does Elaine Riley as the requisite (but hardly crucial) heroine.
