A spare, almost austere western, From Hell to Texas stars Don Murray as a carefree cowpoke. Accidentally killing the son of a powerful land baron (R. G. Armstrong), Murray runs for his life, pursued by the dead man's vengeful brothers. The fugitive is sheltered by Chill Wills, upon whose ranch Murray spends the bulk of his screen time. In love with Wills' daughter (Diane Varsi), Murray is concerned that he'll eventually have to leave when his pursuers catch up with him, but the boy is exonerated when he saves the life of the land baron's youngest son (Dennis Hopper). A superb piece of filmmaking, From Hell to Texas is barely worth watching unless seen in its original CinemaScope.
