At one point during the late 1940’s and early 1950’s, director Michael Gordon seemed destined to crack the upper tier of Hollywood directors with films like An Act of Murder (1948), The Lady Gambles (1949) and Cyrano De Bergerac (1950). However, his career was interrupted by the blacklist, which halted his career for nearly the rest of the 1950’s until producer Ross Hunter hired him to direct the classic romantic comedy Pillow Talk (1959). This kickstarted a second act primarily as a director of light comedies, of which Texas Across the River was among them. Kino has licensed the film for its Blu-ray debut.

Nice review. Dean Martin liked the western genre and actually made quite a few westerns 11 if you count the Martin and Lewis film Pardners (1956). The others would be Rio Bravo(1958), Four for Texas (1962), Seargants Three (1962), The Sons of Katie Elder (1965), Texas Across the River (1966), Rough Night in Jericho (1967), Bandolero (1968), Five Card Stud (1968), Something Big (1971), Showdown (1973)

I've read or heard that Dean Martin would watch westerns all day long during the last years of his life.

I used to have a 35mm print of this movie. It was not particularly sharp, probably because Techniscope is a 2 perf system. It'll be interesting to see the Bluray.
