similar to every other oil drilling film of the period
21 December 2009 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Run of the mill oil drilling story starring Buster Crabbe about a driller with an investor who doesn't want him to succeed. Its got all of the things that similar movies from the period have, battling co workers, sabotage, investor troubles, romance. It's the sort of movie that they don't really make any more simply because the way we drill for oil is different than it was 70 years ago, and even then they only seemed to be able to be making basically the same film over and over again (trust me if you watch a handful or more of these films and you'll quickly see they are all the same). In all honesty this isn't a bad movie, it's just very similar to every other film with the same plot and your tolerance for the film will depend on on how many other similar films like this you've seen.
