The city of Tulsa is founded after the 1893 Oklahoma land rush. Judge John Kincaid becomes mayor, and his son, Ned, is sheriff. Saloon owner Whip McCord, who has a criminal past, plots against them to gain control of the city.
Father and son Ned Kincaid and John Kincaid are two of the thousands taking part in the Oklahoma land rush of the Cherokee Strip. They are certain they can stake out the piece of land they want for a new townsite, which they will call Tulsa, as they have the two fastest horses in the land. But out of circumstance, they are forced to share their townsite with outlaw Whip McCord, who wants exclusive rights to provide all saloons and gambling joints in the town. After the town of Tulsa is set up, Ned wants to run for mayor and John as sheriff so that they can quash the criminal element in town, namely McCord and his band of men. Their anti-crime platform raises the standoff between the two factions, both sides which will do whatever they need to get what they want. Written by
Fast moving western short subject on the Oklahoma land rush...
Using background music from "Santa Fe Trail" and stock footage from other Warner westerns, OKLAHOMA OUTLAWS is a fast-paced yarn about the Oklahoma land rush and the good men vs. bad outlaws that is the theme of just about every western from Hollywood.
ROBERT SHAYNE is the good cowboy who ends up becoming sheriff and WARNER ANDERSON is the bad guy who meets his fate in the shootout finale.
The twenty minutes of running time moves swiftly and provides some action packed moments that make it easy to watch as the simple story of good vs. evil unfolds.
Summing up: Nothing special but passes the time pleasantly.
