The amount of the ransom for highwayman "Silver Blade" aka Lord Lucius Vyne (Hugh Grant) was one thousand guineas.See more »
[first lines]
Lord Lucius Vyne:There's not much time, Milord. The boat back to France will be waiting in the next cove.
King Charles II:Lord Lucius, I am glad you persuaded me to risk coming out of exile in France to see for myself. I know now that the people are for me. They're sick of Cromwell and his Commonwealth! They want their Charles II. But you have made powerful enemies. When I am back on the throne, if you should need me, send me this.
[hands Lord Lucius his ring]
Lord Lucius Vyne:I am honored, sire, but I fear you will have enough enemies of your own.

I loved this movie growing up, it was a lot of fun and always amusing to know you were a fan of Hugh Grant before he became famous ;) This movie was released as "SilverBlade" in Australia where I grew up and first saw it, and it wasn't until I came to the United States that I found out it had another name. So if there are any Aussies out there wondering if this is the same movie - it is - I have seen both SilverBlade and The Lady & The Highwayman and they are exactly the same.
