Storyline

The owners of World Wide Oil Company in New York City wires its field manager in Mexico to put a couple of wildcat independent drillers out of business. The manager puts one of his own wells on fire, hoping it will explode and burns out the intruders, but the wind shifts and World Wide's wells in the field are menaced. Dan Manton and Ben Lear are said to be the only men who can put out the flames, but they refuse World Wide's &5,000 offer to do so as they are miffed at the company for exploding their own single-shaft well. That wins the approval of saloon-keeper Tampico Tess Terrell who sends Dan and Ben to New York City to gets funds to re-start their drilling operation.There, Bill Conway, and old friend, stakes them and also provides Dan with a party girl that he marries. That causes complications galore. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Quotes

Tampico Tess: What do you boys think of me, anyway?
Ben Lear: Well, Tess...
Dan Manton: We think you're a perfect... lady.
Tampico Tess: [Laughing] Well, if you do, you're crazy.
[still smiling]
Tampico Tess: I know what you think, and you're right. I'm a '23 model with a '33 paint job. I'm running a honky-tonk, and I've run lots worse ones than this. When I was young, I got what I wanted by loving; now that I'm old I get what I want by fighting.

Oil/jungle drama
24 December 1999 | by (Benbrook, Texas) – See all my reviews

William Boyd (pre-Hopalong Cassidy) and Pat O'Brien are drilling for oil in the jungle. Boyd goes to the city to get financing and meets working girl Mae Clarke. They have a great time, fall in love, and get married. The twist, Bill doesn't know Mae was a working girl. When they arrive back at the site, Pat spots her for what she was, and assumes she tricked Bill into the marriage. Thus, the drama unfolds of this friendship/love triangle.

It's a bit dated, and you've seen the plot dozens of times, but, the cast is solid, and the story runs smoothly in it's 54 minute running time.

It would have been better if there had been more danger and excitement about the oil drilling, or life in the jungle, but, it is a drama, not an adventure.

For those that love classic movies, or those wanting to see early performances by the stars.
