Set in South Africa's Kimberley diamond mines around 1910, famed country singer Reeves (in a rare screen appearance) and Parnell are two Americans who sell snake oil and hustle the diamond miners at cards in order to make a living. After winning Swemmer's unproductive mine in a bet, and

meeting his daughter Usher, they enter a partnership with him to help him meet his debts. Wicked bar owner Terre'Blanche raises the water rates, and the trio find themselves desperate for some cash. The Americans put on a musical show and raise the money, but lose it all on a boxing match.

Suddenly, the mine starts producing untold wealth, but Reeves and Parnell have had it with the diamond business and head on, leaving the rocks to Swemmer and Usher. The story is only so-so; the real treat is for the country music fans. Reeves sings tunes that fit nicely into the story. The

supporting cast is fine, but the production is standard.
