Giant (1956)

1 corrected entry

Corrected entry: There are two kinds of oilfield equipment used in the movie: derricks that drill a well, and pump units that pump the oil out of the well. The movie reverses the uses of the equipment. Jet Rick is shown drilling his well with a pump unit. In a later scene, drilling derricks, visible through the restaurant window, are shown over the established oil wells on the Benedict ranch.

Correction: They do have all in one units: A derrick with a pump at the base. You can search Google for the pictures.


Factual error: When the boy is crying because he's made to ride a pony, the Texas flag is made wrong. The top star point is toward the red stripe instead of the white strip as it should be. In other scenes the flag is flown upside down - the white stripe should be on top.
