Texas Across the River
Directed by Michael Gordon
Texas Across the River
From Michael Gordon, the outstanding director of An Act of Murder, The Lady Gambles, Woman in Hiding, Cyrano de Bergerac, Pillow Talk and Portrait in Black, comes this wonderful comedy-western starring screen icons Dean Martin (Rio Bravo, Something Big) and Alain Delon (The Sicilian Clan,Un Flic). The Louisiana wedding of debutante Phoebe Ann Naylor (Rosemary Forsyth, The War Lord) to Don Andrea de Baldasar, El Duce de la Casala (Delon) is stopped by the cavalry over a matter of honor. Don Andrea flees across the river to Texas, where he meets up with Sam Hollis (Martin) and his Indian sidekick, Kronk (Joey Bishop, Ocean’s 11), who are carrying rifles to the town of Moccasin Flats. Don Andrea rescues an Indian maiden, Lonetta (Tina Aumont, Man, Pride & Vengeance), tames some longhorns, competes with Sam for Phoebe’s affections, eludes a Comanche war party and the cavalry (who have come to Moccasin Flats to celebrate Texas statehood) and ultimately saves the town and gets his girl. Co-starring Peter Graves (Robbers’ Roost), Michael Ansara (The Pink Jungle) and Andrew Prine (They’re Playing with Fire).
