Quote from: Pubrickuh it's no secret that it's about sumthing that happened in the 20s, so why is there speculation on whether it's a period piece?

QuoteFrom Library JournalSinclair's 1927 novel did for California's oil industry what The Jungle did for Chicago's meat-packing factories. The plot follows the clash between an oil developer and his son. Typical of Sinclair, there are undertones here of socialism and sympathy for the common working stiff. Though the book is not out of print, this is the only paperback currently available.Copyright 1997 Reed Business Information, Inc.Product Description:In Oil! Upton Sinclair fashioned a novel out of the oil scandals of the Harding administration, providing in the process a detailed picture of the development of the oil industry in Southern California. Bribery of public officials, class warfare, and international rivalry over oil production are the context for Sinclair's story of a genial independent oil developer and his son, whose sympathy with the oilfield workers and socialist organizers fuels a running debate with his father. Senators, small investors, oil magnates, a Hollywood film star, and a crusading evangelist people the pages of this lively novel.
Quote from: depooterNo I'm saying that this is his next planned project, but things can always change. Until a deal is solidified with a studio, then it's all speculation..But I will and always do stand by my comments. I don't play the rumor game.
