McCord's gang robs the stage carrying money to pay Indians for their land, and the notorious outlaw "The Oklahoma Kid" Jim Kincaid takes the money from McCord. McCord stakes a "sooner" claim on land which is to be used for a new town; in exchange for giving it up he gets control of gambling and saloons. When Kincaid's father runs for mayor, McCord incites a mob to lynch the old man whom McCord has already framed for murder.. Written by

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 »
The Oklahoma Kid:
Listen, I learned this about human nature when I was but so high, and that is: that the strong take away from the weak, and the smart take it away from the strong.

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.
