A headstrong young oilman and a beautiful geologist clash wills on the trail of Texas crude. The first meeting between John Taylor— a down-home, intuitive Texan whose expertise lies in guessing where petroleum is located — and feisty Gail Weston— who, as a geologist, is not in the habit of guessing — is hardly promising. So when their first drilling site turns up dry, Gail packs up and heads north. But the lure of oil discovery is strong and soon she finds herself in partnership with John on their own wildcat well. Amidst the breathtaking beauty of Midland Texas, they share a unique quest...and a tender love affair.



Leonard Maltin gave the film two and a half stars.[2]
