Trivia

The discovery well scene was shot in three parts in three days. The first day was filmed rigging up the Walker-neer 32S spudder rig, with tools and drilling floor, the second day was cut short after a 105deg. day, was hit with thunderstorms in the late evening, that included a hail storm, and they had to clear actors, and film crews to a barn near-by. The third day (with the luck of the Santa-Rita), and a sunset that was just like day one, the director shouted to film crew, to get to the rig ASAP, to get that sunset, the shots turned into a signature scene for the movie.

I enjoyed this independent film more than many recent big budget, heavily marketed films. While the narrative is a bit choppy, I got caught up in the potential experience of an oil prospector in early 20th century Texas. While you may not like the main character by the end of the movie, you will be able to better visualize some of the many challenges of life working in early Texas oilfields. Enjoyed the lead and supporting acting crew performances.
