Editorial Reviews

When there's a lovely lady in the middle, sometimes even ordinary business become complicated and dangerous. Dan Somers (John Wayne), a rugged cowboy and Jim 'Hunk' Gardner (Albert Dekker), a prosperous oil baron, both fall head-over-heels for Catherine Elizabeth Allen (Martha Scott), a pretty schoolteacher. Vying for her attention, their battle spills over onto the oil fields of Oklahoma. Tension runs high and danger is at hand when Dan blocks Jim's attempt to lease oil-rich Indian land. A fierce and emotional battle breaks out on the frontier between supporters of the two men in this action-packed western comedy. George "Gabby" Hayes and Dale Evans also star in this one-of-a-kind western directed by Albert S. Rogell (The Black Cat).

5.0 out of 5 stars DVD Please....A Gem Among The Duke's 1940's Films November 20, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
This a John Wayne film like no other. Take it from a huge fan that's seen most of his movies. Although this is not classified as a comedy, the Duke's turns in a sly performance full of great one-liners and facial expressions that had me rolling. Its action adventure in the oil fields and it's very entertaining and fun. Wayne is Cowboy Dan Somers and he competes with oilman Jim Gardner for oil lease rights on Indian land in Oklahoma, as well as for the favors of schoolteacher Cathy Allen. It has a good supporting cast including George "Gabby" Hayes.
You will never see the Duke quite like this in any other role. If you're a fan of the Duke, this film is a must so track down a copy while you can. It was originally titled "In Old Oklahoma" and then reissued as "War of the Wildcats" If we cross our fingers, maybe this will be re-released on DVD as it deserves to be.

2.0 out of 5 stars Buyer Be-Aware February 28, 2011
By GB
Verified Purchase
You need to know that this is NOT a professionally produced DVD. Rather it is a burned (copied) DVD using a DVD-R. (Another reviewer questions the "legality" of this DVD but I don't know anything about this.) The DVD label and case insert are poorly done. The quality of the actual movie is fine and compares to other old B&W movies of the time that have been released on DVD. This is a good (not great) early John Wayne movie. My only concern is about the quality of the DVD that was used to burn this movie. Is it a high quality DVD or not? I don't know. So, how long will this DVD actually last. That remains to be seen. But, alas, this is apparently the only way to get War of the Wildcats (aka In Old Oklahoma). So, I would give the movie at least 3 stars, but the DVD only 2.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pirated Homemade Phony March 21, 2010
Verified Purchase
This is a great film but the person that made this DVD, the case and DVD cover was an amateur. This is a homemade phony. The images on the DVD case front cover and the DVD are blurry and the back of the case which usually has a movie summary, actors and all sorts of copyright, production info, and other things was totally blank. I returned it to the Amazon legal department. This film was not released on DVD in Region 1 although it should be. BUYER BEWARE! This is a rip-off.

4.0 out of 5 stars Poor print quality June 24, 2013
By val
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Totally love the movie, John Wayne is one of my favorites. Very disappointed in quality of blu-ray transfer. Looks as if they transferred vhs or dvd copy to blu-ray without re-mastering, what's the point of this. Would rate 4 stars if blu-ray transfer was better.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Duke March 9, 2013
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
Not one of his better movies. This is not a war story or a old west western where John Wayne is in his true element. The quality of the VHS was grainy and hard to watch. The movie gets two stars because of the small part Dale Evans had in it. I would suggest watching John Wayne in one of his other great action movies.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap packaging November 6, 2012
Verified Purchase
The front and back cover of this product look like they were printed off a cheap home printer. The back cover has four lines containing the Title, Studio, Release Date, and Disc. These lines aren't formatted properly and parts of the words are chopped off.

5.0 out of 5 stars "War" is Great! December 26, 2010
By Dufus
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
Sadly, this film has not been released on DVD, but I and my family consider it to be one of the best of John Wayne's Saturday Matinée type films. The acting and storyline are first-class. Buy it if you don't have it. It's great!

4.0 out of 5 stars DUKE STRIKES IT RICH WITH ANOTHER CLASSIC! April 7, 2001
By dlonz
Format:VHS Tape
This movie was a pleasant surprise. A great movie with all the elements of a Duke classic: fist fights, Indians, love affairs, drunken debacle and tom foolery. Duke is at his best with his one liners and Joe cool attitude. Wayne's character in the movie (Dan) has shades of Wayne's characters in "Red River" and "The Searchers" Dan is so intent on getting 10,000 gallons of oil to Oklahoma, that he'll do it at any price. He'll starve his men and forgo their dinners. It takes the reason of a woman, Cathy (Martha Scott) to help Dan to not only think of a means to an end, but others' well being as well.
I highly recommend this movie. Ranks right up there with my favorites, "Red River" "El Dorado" "The Comancheros" and "Hondo"
Simply a classic....
