Tex riding shotgun with Sunset Carson in "Rio Grande Raiders"
Tex as he appeared in his most famous role as Brizzard in "The Oregon Trail", 1959, opposite Fred McMurray
As "Brizzard", Tex uses his whip to take down a citizen in "The Oregon Trail", while Fred MacMurray, standing next to the wagon, looks on. Tex was a very skilled "whip man" and was often asked to display his talents in films without actually appearing on screen.
