It's okay.
28 January 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Black Gold" is a short full-length film--even for a B-movie. Additionally, the DVD copy by Alpha Video is missing 4 minutes--making the entire picture only 53 minutes in length.

The O'Reilly family has everything staked on an oil well they are digging. Dan just KNOWS it will come in but the deadline on his lease is about to expire. To make things worse, he doesn't realize that his friend, J.C. Anderson (Berton Churchill) is a jerk--and will do anything to make sure the oil well DOESN'T produce because he knows it's on a very rich site and wants it all for himself--even if it means murder!

This is an amiable B-movie and it has few slow spots--mostly because of its run-time. The ending seemed a bit weak and hearing everyone refer to the black actor Fred Toones as 'Snowflake' (his common stage name) was kind of sad
