Not much of a story, but John Wayne makes for a pleasant heroic figure.

Audience Reviews for In Old Oklahoma (War of the Wildcats)


Albert Dekker as the heavy does quite a lot for this story about the expansion over Native lands by the growing oil concerns (which literally is still happening!). He's an even match for the Duke, who usually flattens all resistance effortlessly. Although often stilted and awkward by and large this turn-of-the-century look at greed run amuck holds interest. Not bad.
