The Sooner State is the official nickname of Oklahoma. The unassigned lands of the Oklahoma Territory were opened up to settler claims on April 22, 1889. Thousands of people were in line on the border waiting for the signal to be given so they could race into the territory to claim a stake of land. Some people went in early to stake claims and they became known as "Sooners." The early legal settlers of Oklahoma Territory held a very low opinion of sooners. That began to change by 1908 when the University of Oklahoma adopted the name for its football team. By the 1920s the term no longer carried a negative connotation, and Oklahomans adopted the nickname as a badge of pride and progressivism (source: Oklahoma became the 46th state of the United States of America in 1907.

These movies have a connection with Oklahoma. They are (partially) filmed there or it's a topic in the story. Which movie (or movie poster) do you associate the most with Oklahoma?
