Langtry, TX, almost in Mexico, is down on the part of Texas that curves around the Big Bend area. It's not much of a town
these days, but once upon a time it was the stuff about which cowboy thrillers were written and filmed. It was the home of
Judge Roy Bean, known as the Hanging Judge, though it is doubtful he ever hung anyone. The town is named after the love
of his life, an actress named Lillie Lantry.
