Two men from an oil syndicate from Chicago travel through Pine Ridge and play a prank on the town and try to make the town, mainly Lum & Abner, think there's oil underneath the Jot-Em Down Store. Lum has the town mortgage their houses and properties to get the oil derrick set up, but when the derrick doesn't come in, Lum & Abner travel to Chicago to get the syndicate to buy the oil rights, but they are also suited by another syndicate. So while the two competitors fight over the contract, Squire is back in Pine Ridge trying to defame Lum & Abner's name by buying the mineral properties. An ok Lum & Abner film but not among the best of the series. Parts of the plot play like Two Weeks to Live, so there's really nothing new. Rating- 5.
