R | | Drama
A story of family, religion, hatred, oil and madness, focusing on a turn-of-the-century prospector in the early days of the business.
Two traditional Christian hymns are heard during the film, both sung by Eli Sunday's Little Boston congregation. The first is "What a Friend We Have in Jesus," which is heard preceding the scene in which Eli tells Plainview he will bless the oil ... ...
Eli! Tragedy at the well last night.
Eli Sunday: Yes, I heard.
Plainview: Joe Ghunda was a man of considerable faith, so if you wish to say a few words, his burial's at noon, tomorrow.
Eli Sunday: Daniel, this accident could have been avoided. It is terrible to think of that well ...
When Eli enters Daniel's office to ask about the blessing, as he starts to sit down his hands are starting to tent together, but when the camera changes his hands are at his side and when only after he sits down does he tent his fingers.
