A Dull Hero, But Beautiful Location Photography and a Great Climax!
11 February 2008 | by See all my reviews

With a few notable exceptions, Jack Perrin's films are a dull lot and it always amazes me that he had such an extensive leading man career before producers finally woke up to the fact that he had little charisma and he was reduced to the rank of a movie extra—and even then, he was still much in demand!

The reason, of course, was that in real life Jack was a very nice guy. This quality is very apparent in "The Man from Oklahoma" in which he plays the slow-on-his-feet, slow-moving, slow-reacting hero to a "T". This makes the climax so intensely effective, and even though such scenes have often been filmed before and since, here the cliff-top tussle really comes across as a stand-out action piece. Until then, Jack is mostly content to let all the fighting and running around be done by Rex, the dog. (Even Starlight seems unusually lethargic).

Miss Hill seems adequate enough as the heroine, while Lew Meehan, as usual, overplays the villain. Lafe McKee is hampered by poor make-up.

All the most interesting performances come from the support cast: Bud Osborne does more than justice to an unusually meaty role, while Molly Malone shines in her one bar-room scene with Perrin and Meehan.

At one point, Rex is joined by Martin Turner in coming to the rescue of the hero. It's pleasing to report that Mr Turner (despite the contrary efforts of the title writer) manages the difficult feat of playing the comic relief with a fair amount of dignity.
