Terror in a Texas Town (1958)

Rating:No Rating
Genre:Western
Release Date:January 1, 1958
Running time:80 minutes
Cast:Sterling Hayden, Sebastian Cabot
Director:Joseph H. Lewis

Description: This near-legendary western stars Sterling Hayden as George Hanson, the son of a Swedish seaman-turned-farmer (Ted Stanhope). When he runs afoul of town boss Ed McNeil (Sebastian Cabot), Hanson's father is gunned down by McNeil's henchman Johnny Crale (Ned Young). Knowing full well that he can expect no help from the town's corrupt sheriff (Tyler McVey), Hanson takes matters in his own hands. Tension mounts steadily until the unforgettable climactic showdown, wherein Hanson arms himself with a harpoon! Extremely well written by Ben L. Perry, Terror in a Texas Town was one of the last directorial efforts of cult favorite Joseph H. Lewis.~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
