Hello fellow members!
I watched the movie "Kid from Texas" last night on Netflix,and let me tell you people,I consider myself "a no-spin movie critic!"
I found this to be the best Audie Murphy Western movie![I remember seeing this movie way back in the 50's!]
Why?Because he was very young,looking trim and fit,still with those boyish good looks,yet deadly serious.Check out those piercing eyes!Also,I firmly believe this movie is his first Western?
He plays Billy The Kid,and he does a perfect job.
This movie ,most likely,launched his Western Movie career.
And any critic that says he couldn't act, is ,either blind or crazy!He is a natural and believable actor ,especially in roles like this one where he probably relates so well to the subject he is portraying.
And the real Billy The Kid couldn't compete with Audie's handsome boyish looks.Ha!The real Billy looked like H*LL ,and having terrible buckteeth didn't help any!
This movie was released in 1950,making AM around 24/25 while filming this biography on the real Kid!
And a bonus,Audie does some narrating himself!
And all you confessed Murphy "swooners," if this Kid doesn't make you swoon,better see your family doctor!
Late edition...Audie plays a killer in this movie,and with a double-edged sword;one side kills the bad guys ,the other ,kills the ladies!
Edited again:I for got to add this in. In this movie Audie wears a black leather jacket with with a black scarf and black hat,wears a black leather holster for his gun,and rides a beautiful black horse ,while playing a "dark" character!
