At only 81 minutes in length, "Flowing Gold" is no sweeping drama, like "Giant". It's the story of one wildcat oilfield crew who are trying to bring in the well that will change their lives.
It's a rough life, filled with dangers and hardships, but the crew's camaraderie keeps the film light. The requisite love story, which fizzles more than sizzles, also provides some relief from the gritty drama of the drill.
John Garfield plays the lead--a guy always on the run from the authorities, who is wanted for murder in another state. He's a tough guy with a chip on his shoulder who, maybe, just needs someone to believe in him.
Not much new ground is covered here. And most of the action is predictable. The cast does about as much as it can with the script they are given.
