L. C. ANDERSON HIGH SCHOOL TRIBUTE 39: 1954 YELLOWJACKETS YEARBOOK:ADS & "TEXAS LADY"

MY SELECTION NO. 39 FOR BEST MOVIES OF THE FORTIES AND FIFTIES IS
" TEXAS LADY"
STARRING "CLAUDETTE COLBERT", "BARRY SULLIVAN", AND "RAY COLLINS"!!



Texas Lady is a 1955 film made by RKO Radio Pictures, directed by Tim Whelan, and starring Claudette Colbert, Barry Sullivan and Ray Collins. It tells the story of a female publisher who encounters injustice and violence in a Texas town.
Plot-On a riverboat, gambler Chris Mooney loses heavily to Prudence Webb, borrows another $30,000 and loses that to her, too. He offers her a partnership. Prudence declines, informing him that her father embezzled funds to gamble with Chris, then committed suicide after he lost. Prudence has her revenge and the money to pay back her late father's employer.

She rides to Fort Ralston, Texas to claim her inheritance, the Clarion newspaper, which her dad won in a card game. Stringer Winfield, the postal carrier, warns her that town founder Micah Ralston and ranch partner Sturdy own practically everything and everybody.
