Trivia of Texas Lightning

- The original version of Texas Lightning was a serious drama called "The Boys", which producer Edward L. Montoro forced director Gary Graver to re-cut and shoot additional comedic footage for. The new version was released to the theaters as Texas Lightning, while the original cut of the boys remains officially unreleased to this day. An illegitimate video was released in Finland in the early 90's. There might also be other European bootleg editions. Full Trivia >>
