Pretty Oily
29 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Unremarkable film about a bunch of good guys trying to find oil while a bad guy tries to get it for himself. It has the usual pack of thugs who throw their weight around. A crusading union type guy trying to pull the others together when the going gets tough. It's not a terrible movie, but not very suspenseful or believable. The young lead was apparently pretty charismatic back in the thirties. He looks like a refugee from the Bowery Boys, ready to fight, with that mop of black hair and bottom heavy build. It has a few action scenes and a conclusion that isn't particularly satisfying. It is worth a look as a period piece.
