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.


Continuity mistake: When Luz is talking to Jet on the phone for the first time, from the front she's fiddling with the phone cord with her left hand. When it cuts to the reverse, however, her hand is flat on the desk.
