There’s gold in California, and greedy mine owners blast the state’s majestic mountains with high-pressure power hoses to unleash the glittery wealth – even if the process may create rampaging floods on local farmlands. A Sweeping historical epic, Gold Is Where You Find It tells this true story of the 1870s through the lens of a romance between a mining engineer (George Brent) and a wealthy landowner’s daughter (Olivia de Havilland). Director Michael Curtiz (Casablanca) shows a sure hand with spectacle, especially in the climactic scene depicting a massive dam explosion. The spectacle is intensified by the same three-strip Technicolor® process that helped make The Adventures of Robin Hood and The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex (both also directed by Curtiz) so memorable. The fine supporting cast includes Margaret Lindsay, Tim Holt, Sidney Toler, George “Gabby” Hayes and Claude Raines as de Havilland’s implacable father.

Relationships are favored over the material culture created by gold, and Olivia DeHavlliland's last look at George Brent is in a scene where the sun is setting over an unmarked, as yet undamaged, corner of the earth.
I bought this film because of Olivia de Havilland to add to my collection.
The plot is melodramatic but director Michael Curtiz (“Casablanca”) handles the spectacle elements handsomely, particularly the climactic scene of a massive dam explosion. An attraction in itself is the vibrant three-strip Technicolor photography, a rarity in movies of the 30s, which showed its full potential a year later in “The Wizard of Oz” and “Gone With the Wind.”
