This was James Cagney's first western. He would appear in only 2 more westerns ("Run For Cover" and "Tribute To A Bad Man") much later in his career during the 1950's. See more »
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 »
What's your proposition?
You go right ahead and build your town and attract settlers.
So you can take away their money at faro and roulette, eh?
Yeah, that's the idea. You take care of their virtues, I'll take care of their vices. Simple, ain't it?

President Grover Cleveland declares some Oklahoma Cherokee land to be available for western settlers, which attracts singing cowboy James Cagney (as "The Oklahoma Kid" Jim Kincaid) and his more dastardly, dark-suited rival Humphrey Bogart (as "Whip" McCord). Mr. Bogart gains control of the burgeoning town of Tulsa's vice, crime, gambling, and murder trade. Mr. Cagney lives on the outskirts since he's "WANTED!" But, he becomes reform-minded when Bogart's gang make trouble for Cagney's estranged brother Harvey Stephens (as Ned Kincaid), who want to clean up Tulsa. Cagney is also attracted to Donald Crisp (as Judge Hardwick)'s virtuous daughter, Rosemary Lane (as Jane Hardwick). In hindsight, this is more of a novelty than a movie.
