In TV's pioneer days when kids idolized the Lone Ranger, the Texas Kid was a knight errant of the frontier leading the fight for law and order alongside his Mexican companion Pepe. In this rarely-seen TV pilot, the Kid and Pepe intercede on behalf of the murdered rancher's daughter, openly defying the landgrabbers in a cow town so lawless that rustlers operate in broad daylight!<P>Shot at the Corrigan Ranch in 1950, <I>TEXAS KID</I> co-starred Mercury Records recording artist John Laurenz as Pepe and stuntman Hugh Hooker as the Kid.

That movie's star was Hugh's teenage son Buddy Joe Hooker, whose own subsequent, stellar stunt career inspired <I>HOOPER</I> (1978), Burt Reynolds' hit comedy tribute to movie stuntmen. -- Tom Weaver<P><B>BONUS:</B> <I>The Gabby Hayes Show</I>: Host Gabby introduces a digest version of 1947's <I> Law Of The Lash</I> starring Lash LaRue.
