Title: Texas Trail (1937)
Post by: titoli on June 02, 2011, 09:54:18 AM
I wonder why the italian distributors:

1) took the pain  to dub it (I presume not before the '80's): local tv distribution? In that case I never saw it in my city

2) added some '60's Bonanza music which collides with the b&w images

3) cut a good 15 minutes (making the plot unintelligible, almost: I had to read the review at IMDB to understand that the action was taking place during the Spanish-American War) 

4) released it on dvd (this is the most unintelligible action of all).


I give it 2\10 only because the episode (which has all the inventiveness of a Rin Tin Tin and Rusty plot) has a couple of interesting location, especially the one of a huge cave (or, better, a vault) I haven't seen anywhere else.
