| weird plot goes just everywhere
Bill (Dennis OKeefe) and Margo (Florence Rice ) have a run-in when they meet for the first time, and they hate each other so much, you can tell its only a matter of time before they fall in love. LOVE Jessie Ralph! (She was the perfect foil to W.C. Fields.) You'll also see a 30 year old Buddy Ebsen as the dancing ranch hand. Jack Carson is in here too. He will go on to great roles, like along-side Joan Crawford in Mildred Pierce. The premise in "Kid From Texas" is a little wacky... when a rancher sells a horse, his ranch hand wants to along with it. The jet set plays polo, so the ranch hand takes it up too. It's all pretty silly. Everyone keeps getting knocked into the water. Rice wouldn't stick around very long...she disappeared pretty quickly from the Hollywood scene. This one needed a better script... the meandering plot seems to be aimed at a younger audience, maybe as the second Saturday matinée. It's OK. Don't really need to see this one again. Some early roles for some big names, though.
