War of the Wildcats - John Wayne (100 Years Today)

War of the Wildcats adapted for radio aired December 6, 1943 starring John Wayne as Daniel F. Somers, Martha Scott as Catherine Elizabeth Allen, Albert Dekker as Jim 'Hunk' Gardner and George 'Gabby' Hayes as Despirit Dean. Originally released under the title In Old Oklahoma cowboy Dan Somers and oil man Jim "Hunk" Gardner battle for drilling rights on Indian lands in Oklahoma during the oil boom days, as well as for the love of school teacher turned scandalous book author Cathy Allen. Just plain good old entertainment in this one with fist fights, Indians, love affairs, funny one-liners from the Duke, and a dance hall song performed by Dale Evans. I guess this was a pre Roy Rogers days appearance for Dale. Enjoy!!
