VIDEO Oiltown USA (1953)

Oiltown U.S.A. (1953) is a Christian movie by Billy Graham’s production company. I believe this was the first Billy Graham film. It is historically interesting as a very early evangelistic film.

Directed by Dick Ross. Starring Colleen Townsend, Paul Power, Cindy Walker, Redd Harper, Georgia Lee, and Billy Graham as himself. Also with singer George Beverly Shea as himself.

Plot: Christine Manning returns to her father’s home in Texas for the summer. She soon realizes that her father, oil millionaire Les Manning, is disliked and feared as a ruthless businessman by the people around him. Les Manning has always relied on himself to become successful and has never trusted in God. But he may have to change his ways…
