The Wildcat Woman Serves the Best Revenge for Killing Her Father
When you mention Tulsa, Oklahoma to me, I think of pretty women, strong, determined, focused women, . . . Namely, Susan Hayward from this movie, and my sister Carol. I’ve only been to Tulsa one time, to visit my sister Carol while she was attending the first class of the brand new Oral Roberts University. Carol and her Canadian boyfriend Charles took me to a basketball game and we watched the team win a rousing game. That was in 1968, and Tulsa was still a robust prairie oil city.
When this movie was filmed, I wasn’t yet a gleam in papa’s eye, and Carol was a one-year-old toddler. Susan Hayward is the beautiful, strong and focused ranch woman named Cherokee Lansing. As our adventure begins, Cherokee, her father and a neighbor rancher are on horseback riding around the Lansing ranch. Cherokee’s father has just spent all of his money to purchase a new herd of cattle.
Suddenly the Lansing ranch foreman rides up to them and shouts to Papa Lansing that there is an emergency. Cherokee and the men ride quickly to the creek where the new cattle are grazing, and they discover dead cattle lying next to the creek. Oil from a nearby oil well is polluting the creek, and Papa Lansing rides like lightning to the nearby oil derrick.
Just as Papa Lansing begins yelling at the oil rig roustabouts, oil begins gushing from the well, and as Papa Lansing runs from the chaos, a large section of the wooden rig falls on him, crushing him to death. Beautiful Cherokee Lansing vows her revenge on the big businessman who drills all the wells on the nearby ranch land. She will not kill him, she will not attack him, . . . no, she has a different kind of revenge in mind. The only question is whether she can keep her focus on the right thing.
“The iron is ready and the brand is hot, the number is seven, for all I got.” - Cherokee Lansing in the Tulsa casino. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
