Angie Dickinson's character is called Laura Breckenridge in this movie. During the era that this film was made, there was a controversial movie made called Myra Breckinridge (1970). However, that movie was actually first released about a year after this film came out. See more »
Laura Breckenridge drives a wagon laden with hay to the bank. It's about eight-nine feet long. When Sam, O.W. & Jed all drop from an upper floor of the bank into the hay wagon they appear to be about 18-24 inches tall compared to the length of the wagon. See more »

Great Fun To Be Had In Burt Reynolds First Good Movie
Burt Reynolds and Anne Margaret sizzle with on screen chemistry in Burt Reynolds first good movie.
Up till this point Burt had been in mostly forgettable movies like "Operation CIA" and "Navajo Joe" or smaller roles in movies like "Angel Baby" and "Armoured Command". Here he shines as he does the type of light comedy for which would become his trademark. Without his trademark moustache his performance is full of charm and wit, with a twinkle in his eye, he is clearly enjoying himself.
Plot In A Paragraph: Sam Whiskey is an all round nice guy, but with a loud, fast mouth that gets him in trouble. He is willing to try his hand at just about anything but when the attractive widow Laura offers him a job, he is to salvage gold bars, which Laura's dead husband stole recently, from a sunken ship and secretly bring them back to the mint before they are missed. But how shall he manage to get several hundred pounds of gold into the mint without anyone noticing??
Of the rest of the cast, frequent costar of Burt Reynolds, Sweet Ossie Davies who I adore, is great here, like wise Clint Walker. Anne Margaret is gorgeous, and it's easy to see how she tempted Reynolds character to do her bidding!!
