After this movie wrapped shooting, Burt Reynolds apparently kept a photo of himself from the film. The still was of the bedroom scene between he and Angie Dickinson. Reynolds apparently had the photo blown up and then hung it over the top of his bar at his house. A caption was added to the picture. It read: "An actor's life is pure hell?". 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!!
