Convinced that oil is plentiful in the seabed off the Gulf of Mexico, a pair of wildcatters (James Stewart, Dan Duryea) get their backers to stake them to a platform off of a Louisiana coastal town. The struggling local shrimpers, though, aren't happy with the intrusion, and the tensions might blow sky-high well before any gusher. Anthony Mann's thrilling adventure-drama co-stars Gilbert Roland, Joanne Dru, Marcia Henderson, Jay C. Flippen. 82 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
