"When No. 16 well of the Crude Oil Corporation's field blew its top, the onlyavailable explosive to halt the gushing blast of flame and smoke was nitro glycerine - and that was 300 miles away. Somebody had to drive the lorry all the way fom Las Piedras to the oil-field, over rough mountain roads spattered with boulders and pot-holes, through a long night, and under the burning tropical sun. The lorry had to travel that 300 miles with no special safety devices, with hastily adapted tanks . . . with half a ton of explosive on its back that could reduce the men, the lorry and half the road to dust at the slightest jolt or rise in temperature... . This is the story of Gerard, the driver, who was brave, or foolish, enough to volunteer for the mission ... The Wages of Fear has been bought by Universal for William Friedbin's first film since The Exorcist." (Abstract). Rubbed and edgeworn, stickerghost to inside front cover, else very good. 25.00
