Goofs

As Wayne's character builds his oil rig and races to strike oil, the words of the months appearing on screen to show time passing are in an art deco font--a strange choice, seeing as the film's story is set in the early 20th century before the Roaring 20s. See more »

Gem of a John Wayne Film
20 November 2003 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

This a John Wayne film like no other. Take it from a huge fan that's seen most of his movies. Although this not classified as a comedy, the Duke's turns in a sly performance full of great one-liners and facial expressions that had me rolling. Its action adventure in the oil fields and it's very entertaining and fun. Wayne is Cowboy Dan Somers and he competes with oilman Jim Gardner for oil lease rights on Indian land in Oklahoma, as well as for the attentions of schoolteacher turned scandalous book author Cathy Allen. It has a good supporting cast including George "Gabby" Hayes. You will never see the Duke quite like this in any other role. If you're a fan of the Duke, you will love this film. It was originally titled "In Old Oklahoma" and then reissued as "War of the Wildcats".
