Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
The fifth of eight Metropolitan Bob Steele B-Westerns, The Pal From Texas featured the diminutive screen cowboy attempting to prevent old prospector pal (Josef Swickard) from being swindled by an unscrupulous tavern owner (Ted Adams). When the friend, Texas, is found murdered, suspicion immediately falls on Bob. Even Texas' niece, Alice (Claire Rochelle), believes Bob to be the killer. With the sheriff (Jack Perrin) and his posse close behind, Bob manages to unearth enough evidence to convict the tavern owner and his gang of racketeering and murder. With his innocence firmly established, Bob proposes to Alice. A blond starlet who often portrayed brassy dames, Claire Rochelle was Bob Steele's leading lady in four Westerns from 1937-1939.
