Competently made but Cagney just doesn't make sense in the West.

it was good to watch an old black and white movie and the technology available in those times compared to todays. Great to see a young Humphrey Bogart and James Cagney from where they were then,to where there acting careers took them today,so to speak.

An all right, over all western from Hollywood's Golden Age. Pretty good drama, surprisingly, and great entertainment from Cagney and Bogart in such rare performances.

A western novel "Destry rides again " was made into a movie starring James Stewart which did not follow the novels plot at all. However, "The Oklahoma Kid" follows that plot almost completrly.

I had trouble believing Cagney was not a gangster from Chicago and Bogart was not exactly the stereotypical western bad guy. It was interesting to see the fight scene and compare to the present.

A good old-fashioned good guys vs bad guys western. Plot is fairly basic, but works. Similarly the acting is a bit over-the-top, but works. It is basically the swagger of James Cagney and Humphrey Bogart that propels the movie, and makes it work. Makes it quite amusing at times, too...

(Might actually be the first movie to include both Cagney and Bogart, so is of historical significance too).

more sad than funny the horribly miscast western stinks.

Bogart is the bad guy here. Good stuff. If you like classic westerns you will love this one.

Don't know how I feel about Bogart in a cowboy hat but Jimmy Cagney was fun to watch.

Everyone goes on so much about how misplaced it was to place Cagney and Bogart in a western, but the characters they play are totally in line with the gangster figures they are more commonly associated with, and present compatible shadings of good and bad and lawlessness and justice that fit equally well into a western as well as a gangster picture. Some of the supporting characters are interesting in their moral shading too too, especially the judge (Donald Crisp). The film is extremely fast-paced, never boring and far more interesting than its reputation would have us believe. And Bogart and Cagney both inhabit their roles in their own, unique way.

I don't like to see Bogart playing a bad gay...

Good movie although it takes a while to swallow both Bogart and Cagney in a western - still think that Cagney looks almost comical (being as small as he is, he cuts a less thn imposing gunslinger). Darker in tone, than you would expect from similar films of the time..it is still let-down slightly by the cheesy final scene.
