Aside from a few quick shots of downtown landmarks, none of this movie was actually filmed in Tulsa. Most of the location work took place on the 10,000-acre ranch of Oklahoma Gov. Roy J. Turner in the town of Sulphur, 145 miles from Tulsa. See more »

It's oil that drives the ships, powers the trains and the planes and fills the traffic lanes. Yes sir, oil's a right valuable commodity, sought for and fought for all over the globe, in Arabia and Persia, Venezuela, Algiers and Mexico. But talk to an oilman anywhere and he'll tell you the oil capital of the world is Tulsa.

Susan storms into Scarlett O'Hara territory with this meller substituting oil field for plantations and the Civil War. If you have ever seen her test for Scarlett it was obvious at the time she wasn't ready, but ten years on she is in full command of the screen and tears into this part with her customary brio mopping the floor with anyone who gets in her way. She has a few touching moments with Chill Wills' character but otherwise is tough as nails and furiously driven. Not a great picture but a good one with Robert Preston a strong co-star and a great cast of character actors but indifferent direction, if you are a fan of Susan though it is unmissable.
