The Farmer from Texas (German: Der Farmer aus Texas) is a 1925 German silent comedy film directed by Joe May and starring Mady Christians, Willy Fritsch and Lillian Hall-Davis. It was based on the play Kolportage by Georg Kaiser. The film was considered a costly box office failure, contributing to a financial crisis at Germany's largest studio Universum Film AG.[1] The film's sets were designed by Paul Leni.
