Hydraulic Mining versus Sacramento Valley Farming.
Did You Know?
A real historical character, wealthy mining magnate and U.S. Senator George Hearst (Moroni Olson) appears in one scene, joking about how you know when you've found gold. He then mentions that his son "Willie" wants to take over the running of The San Francisco Examiner, but expresses doubt that there's any money in newspapers. That's an in-joke referring to William Randolph Hearst, who had built a vast news empire by the time this film was produced. The younger Hearst's own production company, Cosmopolitan, made the film.
