"Boom Town" is possibly the most unabashedly red-meat he-man movie ever released. Oil is wrenched from Mother Earth by Randian heroes and sold for profit to fuel the industrial revolution, and congressional sleaze-weasels fronting the Sherman Antitrust Act (1890) are the bad guys who gum up the works. Derricks burn and fists fly, because excitement. Gary Cooper's speech at the end of "The Fountainhead" is tepid and passionless compared to Clark's defense of similar principles here.
(There's also cloying romantic drama in here for the ladies.)
It made mad money at the box office -- second only to "Gone With the Wind" as Clark Gable's biggest picture, and was the top ticket-seller in the year of its release.
But then, change: "Red Hollywood"* was in full-swing* behind the scenes by 1943, and such films quickly became impossible to make due to the influence of the CPUSA-controlled Story Analysts Guild. There were no reissuings or remasterings for the pro-capitalist likes of "Boom Town", and it languished into obscurity. The theatrical cut has never been available on DVD or other media.
The police shooting of Brian J. Quinones, who had a dash-cam livestreaming to Facebook at the time (the FB page has since been taken down). Police can be heard conversing in the background after the shooting. The knife can be seen at 12:08; slow the video to 50% speed, and mouse-click/pause/play forward slowly, and you'll see it quite clearly.
No, the video isn't "graphic" or "violent", as was commonly claimed in the press, because while gunshots are heard, the camera faces an empty car seat after Quinones exits his vehicle. As of upload time, this is the only full-length 1:49:48 version of the video available anywhere for forensic examination by independent audio specialists.
Never share a social-media video page when that video is likely to be taken down by the site, as that will obliterate not only the video, but all conversation on the shared post's page (because that blows up too). ALWAYS ARCHIVE THE VIDEO. Post the video to an anti-censorship site like this one, then share THAT link.

The Pinchcliffe Grand Prix (Norwegian: Flåklypa Grand Prix) is a Norwegian stop motion-animated feature film directed by Ivo Caprino. It was released in 1975 and is based on characters from a series of books by Norwegian cartoonist and author Kjell Aukrust.

Anarchism is the political manifestation of liberty.
Capitalism is the economic manifestation of liberty. (see: https://infogalactic.com/info/Capitalism )
-- If that doesn't make sense to you, it's because the definitions you're given have been corrupted and inverted by socialists over the course of the last two centuries (in particular ever since Proudhon hijacked anarchy from the ancient Greek [an][archos] (literally: [without][masters]) and Marx hijacked capitalism from the French laissez-faire).
Back when America didn't take crap from anyone.
From the 2015 film, this is the entire first sequence involving Immortan Joe discovering the treachery of Imperator Furiosa, the War Boys marshaling, and the chase into the sandstorm.
