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 Ed Stephan <stephan@cc.wwu.edu>

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 »

Cagney's First Western
26 November 2002 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

After all of his movies in the asphalt jungle, Cagney came west. He acquits himself well too. He did own a ranch and was a pretty good rider. Throughout the movie his trademark mannerisms show. When you consider how you would imagine an "Oklahoma Kid" to be and act, then Cagney was perfect for the role. Always in control with a touch of humor but tough when he had to be. He was in many westerns later in his career but this was his first western.

Bogart handled himself as you would expect a tough guy to act in the west. Bogart is Bogart and he plays his role well. Two tough guys, one bad and one bad with some good points. In the end they have to settle. The ending is not what you expect.
