Goofs

When the Kid visits Jane, he ties his horse to the bar in front of the house. A short time after that, Ned arrives. He's searching for the Kid. He is so eager to get him that (later in the movie) he even shoots at him (when the Kid is fleeing from the court house). But when Jane tells Ned that the Kid is not there, he believes her without asking about the horse, which he must have seen when he arrived. See more »

Good Movie Despite Cagney's Mushroom Hat
9 April 2007 | by (Watertown, Massachusetts) – See all my reviews

I don't agree with a previous poster that Bogart and Cagney looked too urban to be in a western. Not all westerners spoke with a drawl. Many came to the west to escape ore reinvent themselves. You might easily run into a New Yorker or an Englishman in a western barroom. Theodore Roosevelt went west following the simultaneous deaths of his wife and mother. The writer Robert Louis Stevenson also went west.

I'd would have played up Cagney's New Yorkisms by having him wear a derby rather than that over-sized hat he wore. Let him be from New York. Not all westerners wore what was thought as typical western garb. Bat Masterson was quite the dandy.

Poor Bogart. In the 1930's he was desperately trying out a wide range of parts and acting styles. He was good as the villain, but wasn't yet the Bogie that became iconic. I've never seen the movie, but I understand he played a vampire in one movie. Wow! Poor Bogart.

That said, 'Oklahoma Kid' an entertaining movie. I love Cagney's anarchist-populist rhetoric. How often did you hear that in a western? It's a wonder he didn't organize a labor union!
