Critic Reviews for Texas Lady

Audience Reviews for Texas Lady


Thia was Claudette's second to last theatrical feature and if this was the quality of scripts she was being offered at that time it's no wonder she stayed away six years between this and Parrish. First of all she belongs in some urbane urban setting not the Old West and try though she might she is out of place here. Additionally she and Barry Sullivan, always a dull leading man no matter his costar, go together like oil and water. The script is ordinary and the direction not terribly exciting plus the film is soft and fuzzy with overbright color. If you like Claudette or westerns it's okay but don't expect anything above the routine.
