Don "Red" Barry, the "Wyoming Outlaw" and "Tulsa Kid" in other Republic westerns, does not play any one of the title characters in Texas Terrors. That honor goes to the film's villains, headed by the murderous mine-jumper who killed the father of hero Bob Millbourne (Barry). Growing up to become a lawyer, Bob tries to use legal methods to catch the bad guys. Should this fail, of course, he can always rely on his fists and his six-shooters, which he does from time to time. Former Ziegfeld Follies headliner Ann Pennington shows up for a brief dance number, indicating sadly that her best years were behind her.
