For me, this film is a weak Randolph Scott film for one big reason...
4 April 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"The Doolins of Oklahoma" begins with the faked Dalton Gang being blown apart during one of their many bank robberies. However, one member of the gang, Bill Doolin (Randolph Scott) escapes and eventually forms his own gang. They, too, terrorize the countryside--robbing banks throughout the territory. However, and this REALLY annoyed me, the film tried to portray the gang as a bunch of NICE crooks--and Doolin was the nicest of them! This is a very bad cliché and making heroes out of scum is something Hollywood did a lot in the so-called 'good old days'. I don't get it--and it seriously damaged my enjoyment of the film. It's a shame, as Scott, as usual, was quite good in the lead and the movie was reasonably entertaining and well made. But, because it starts off with a ridiculous premise and makes it hard to care about the characters, it's definitely one of the weakest Randolph Scott films you can see. Not terrible...just not very good.
