Trivia

At the end, when the Jenny barely clears the building, then descends out of sight, then reappears, these scenes were taken from "The Spirit of St. Louis" which starred James Stewart. It was the scene where Lindberg had bought the Jenny and was taking off. See more »

Goofs

At the end, when Phillip Carey, Diane McBain, and James Best are in the Jenny, when they start to taxi, there is a cable visible from the landing gear spreader bar that goes out to the right - obviously being used to pull the airplane forward. See more »

Quotes

Jericho Larkin: To Chick Carrington :You know what, you're the only man I know who's mean enough to have a good time in hell.

A well made programmer
3 January 2004 | by (Paddington, Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

A Warner Brothers programmer from the early 1960s about oil drillers in Oklahoma in the 1920s. Not all that bad. A pleasant waste of time and the cast is enthusiastic. One of the things I love about programmers like this is that you get to see a cast of supporting actors getting roles that are bigger than normal, as well as whatever upcoming stars under contract at the time. Phil Carey is the hero, Claude Akins is the bad guy, James Daly ( aka Sheriff Rosco from Dukes of Hazzard) is the irresponsible one and megababe Diane McBain ( look for her in the Elvis film "Spinout" as well as "The Mini Skirt Mob" and "Thunder Alley", she was also Pink Pinkston on TVs "Batman") is the love interest. Fun, not quite an A film, but definitely above most of the similar themed TV shows of the day. Hey it is a Warner Brothers programmer.
