Texas Lawmen was one of the shortest entries in Monogram's Johnny Mack Brown series, running a scant 54 minutes. This time, Brown is hunting for three desperate criminals. Fortunately for Our Hero, two of the crooks -- Bart and Steve Morrow (Stan Jolley and Lee Roberts) -- are father and son, on the verge of a major falling out. Ultimately, Steve Morrow casts his lot with the Good Guys. Texas Lawmen differs from previous rubber-stamp Johnny Mack Brown westerns in one respect: there is no heroine, nor even a supporting actress in the cast. Texas Lawmen was based on a story by actor Myron Healey, who often showed up in the Brown vehicles as a villain.
