Texas Across The River


Somehow I don’t think this would fly now

TEXAS ACROSS THE RIVER—-insipid 1966 western farce with Dean Martin, Alain Delon, Rosemary Forsyth and Joey Bishop as an Indian named ‘Kronk’.  It scoured $9,580,000, clicking #19 for the year.  Dino just had a big hit with The Silencers, his TV show was a smash, records selling well, so his widespread popularity brought in the crowds, plus French heartthrob Delon was getting an international buildup at the time and Universal was pushing the pretty Miss Forsyth.

Tired foolishness, with game gamboling from Peter Graves, Michael Ansara and Andrew Prine. Directed by Michael Gordon, trooping the standard 101 minutes.
