Description: Terror in a Texas Town is a 1958 American Western film directed by Joseph Lewis starring Sterling Hayden.
The script of Terror in a Texas Town was written by Dalton Trumbo. Due to Trumbo's status on the Hollywood Blacklist, Ben Perry initially received screenwriting credit.
Director Lewis was set to retire when his friend, the actor Nedrick Young, handed him the script. Young had been blacklisted and this picture was his chance to get back into the business. Excited by the script, Lewis agreed to do it because he had nothing to fear from working with blacklisted artists as this was going to be his last film anyway.
