a genuine Monogram: Texas Kid, a young guy gone astray.
9 March 2004 | by tmwestSee all my reviews

The french director Jean Luc Godard dedicated his film "Breathless" to Monogram Pictures, he probably must have enjoyed their westerns as so many people did. In this film the Texas Kid is a member of the Scully gang and while on an assault, he is recognized by the Marshall Johnny McBrown, who is a family friend. After that, he starts changing and falls in love with Nancy Drew. It is a typical Monogram, there is no philosophy and no depth at all to the characters, but it has a lot of action and is fun. You can call it a "light" western. The trouble nowadays is that westerns made for TV are becoming "heavy", so "Texas Kid" is a type of western that I would enjoy watching in their place.
