Opening credits prologue: At high noon April 22, 1889 a section of the last unsettled territories in America was to be given free to the first people who claimed it. They came from the north and they came from the south and they came from across the sea. In just one day an entire territory would be settled. A new state would be born. They called it Oklahoma.

In the scene where Jessie Rickey is using a letterpress to print "wanted" posters of the Cherokee Kid and his gang, even though he handed a "fresh" copy to Yancey Cravat, he is running the press dry which would yield no printed impressions - on letterpresses of that type, ink would be applied to the lead type with a roller before the paper is laid down to be run through the press. Plus, he is taking the finished copies off and without looking placing them face down - any printer worth his salt would inspect every print for quality before setting it aside.

During the land rush, several men lasso an Indian driving a wagon and the rope is shown tightening around his neck as they pull him off. In the next scene, they are shown dragging him on the ground, but the rope is now around his waist.

In the New Year's Eve party, colored party balloons fall from the ceiling at midnight. But "twisty neck" party balloons were not developed until the 1950s.

Steve McQueen---Was He Suppose to Star in "Cimarron"?
Chicago Tribune, October 29, 1959, s. 3, p. 9, c. 1:LOOKING AT HOLLYWOODMcQueen Hot as a Pistolby Hedda HopperHollywood, Oct. 28---Steve McQueen's hotter than the pistols he handles in TV's Wanted--Dead or Alive. I wasn't here to see the preview of "Never So Few" with Frank Sinatra and Gina Lollobrigida, but I'm told he steals it. Frankie told me he would while they were making it; now Metro wants Steve for "Cimarron" with Glenn Ford and Maria Schell. He's so busy acting he no longer has time for racing, which is a blessing. . . .________________________________
