The Lone Star State is the official nickname of Texas. The exact origins of this colorful phrase, and the use of a single, white, five-pointed star to represent Texas, are unclear; some accounts trace it to a flag carried by the James Long Expedition in 1819, an early attempt to free Texas from the Spanish empire, while a recent discovery of coins that were minted in what is now San Antonio, showing a five-pointed star on one side and the year 1817 on the other, suggest that the star was already in use as a symbol for the region (source: Texas became the 28th state of the United States of America in 1845.
These movies have a connection with Texas. They are (partially) filmed there or it's a topic in the story. Which movie (or movie poster) do you associate the most with Texas?
