This 1950s-era film offers a look at the mechanics of a large-scale oil drilling operation, location unknown.

The films of the Ray Jelinek Collection were rescued from a flooded trailer in Galveston after Hurricane Ike. They were donated by Jan Valentine and are permanently housed in the archives at the Alfred R. Neumann Library, University of Houston - Clear Lake.
