I don't know why I always liked this movie/musical; it may have something to do with my passion for Indian Territory today, who knows? It's just one of those things that stayed with me for all these years. Of course it is also images like these that mislead people on the entire history of Oklahoma.
Most people don't realize there were many people, including people of African descent already living in what is now called Oklahoma "where the wind comes rushing down the plain!" well before the "Sooners" arrived.
Makes you go, hmmmmmmm?
