Synopsis by Hal Erickson
One of the more original aspects of the Charles Starrett western Texas Stampede is that perennial Starrett-series villain Dick Curtis isn't in the film. Another is its lack of overt violence; even nominal heavy Wayne Cameron (Fred Kohler Jr.) isn't such a bad fellow, and ends up shaking hands with hero Tom Randall. Otherwise, the plot is the usual cattlemen vs. sheepherders affair, with hero Tom Randall (Starrett) trying to bring peace to the territory. Returnees from previous Starrett vehicles include heroine Iris Meredith, Hank Bell and Edmund Cobb. Texas Stampede was photographed by Lucien Ballard, who later lent his talents to such bigger-budgeted westerns as True Grit and Wild Bunch.
