A young drifter (John Garfield), passing through oil country as he flees a bum rap, finds employment from a rig foreman (Pat O'Brien) in desperate need of another pair of hands. What will present more danger─the safety shortcuts taken as they race against the lease's expiration, or the new recruit's attraction to his topkick's girlfriend (Frances Farmer)? Raymond Walburn, Cliff Edwards co-star. 81 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
