There were a total of five land runs in Oklahoma (1889, 1891, 1892, 1893 and 1895). Tulsa was not involved or formed as a result of any of the land runs, as depicted in the movie. See more »
The Oklahoma Kid has a New York accent. The Oklahoma Kid who should sound like someone from Oklahoma. Instead, he sounds like someone from Hell's Kitchen in NYC. Curious casting. See more »
Pop is counting on you to bringing law and order in this territory, Judge.

Remember in GOODFELLAS when Joe Pesci goes crazy with a gun (at his servant's expense) saying 'What's the film with Bogart as a cowboy?" The replie is "Shane?" He retorts "Shane?! No, Oklahoma Kid!" He was refering to this odd misfit, but enjoyable western.
James Cagney and Humphrey Bogart look as well suited in the old west as Gabby Hayes and Lash LaRue would look in a Manhattan speakeasy, but these two pros have fun with the film anyway. Their bar-room brawl with each other is a hum-dinger, and you have to get a load of Cagney singing a Spanish lullaby to a baby.
