Suppose I told you there were half a dozen warrants out for his arrest right now. One for killing a man out of Silver City, Colorado, eight years ago with a knife. Another for killing four Chiricahua Indians.
Eight years ago? Well, that's ridiculous. The boy couldn't have been more than twelve years old!
You don't judge a rattlesnake by his age. He's a rattler whether he's got one rattle or a dozen.

I had forgotten this movie and how much I enjoyed it back in the 50's. I enjoyed most of Audie Murphy's westerns , but do not have a copy of "The Kid From Texas" (hope to get one soon). The only trouble with some of these movies is that when I see them as an adult, they are not the way I remembered them.
