Bogart's character claims to be from "the panhandle". But in what seems like strange casting. He has a strong New York accent. See more »

Cagney's First Western
26 November 2002 | by 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.
