Regarding Humphrey Bogart's "mushroom" jibe about James Cagney in his cowboy hat--Bogart said that Cagney looked like a mushroom--Cagney had a revenge of sorts. After seeing Bogie picking his nose in his car, he wrote a little rhyme: "In this little town of ours, people see all sorts of primps and poses . . . but movie stars in fancy cars shouldn't pick their famous noses". Apparently, according to Michael J. Fox in his excellent documentary about Cagney--James Cagney: Top of the World (1992)--he sent it to Bogart, but didn't receive a reply. See more »
When the Kid visits Jane, he ties his horse to the bar in front of the house. A short time after that, Ned arrives. He's searching for the Kid. He is so eager to get him that (later in the movie) he even shoots at him (when the Kid is fleeing from the court house). But when Jane tells Ned that the Kid is not there, he believes her without asking about the horse, which he must have seen when he arrived. See more »

For a weeknight viewing this was a very entertaining film. Bogart & Cagney were well cast. It was a good story, interesting dialogue and a great cast. Engaging actions scenes and exciting fisticuffs! Highly recommend viewing. James Cagney... what couldn't he do?! He was such a versatile talent. He does show off his agility and song talents in The Oklahoma Kid, and the singing was endearing. If you love Cagney you will like this movie. Bogey was his usual dyspeptic self. Played the bad guy well, of course. And Ward Bond...who doesn't love Ward Bond?! Not a lot of dialogue from him but he played a man of few words. This is a great entertainment for a rainy day or a weeknight. You can't go wrong with this cast.
