A boy named Walter is dropped by his mother Mae at his great-uncles' house. Later,Walter will find out his great-uncles' big secret. And rumors say that Hub & Garth, Walter's great uncles, have stolen much gold & money. (some say they stole it from Al Capone) Did they really steal that money or not? Written by
The shoulder patch on the uniform of the Sheriff, who meets with adult Walter shows Copeland, Texas, (not Comal County, Texas). This helps account for the missing letters (not enough room for Comal County, which does not display on Sheriff patches) and the fact that corn does not do well in South Texas black clay in Comal County, but does do much better in North Texas red clay, near Smith County (where Copeland is).

When the family comes to visit Hub in the hospital scene, the youngest boy is seen entering the doorway first in one shot, then in the following shot he is seen pushing past his sister to enter again. See more »
I have been told by many people this was a great movie and one I needed to watch. Well finally I watched it today and it didn't disappoint me. It has so many great elements to it. I laughed in some parts and cried my eyes out in others. I loved the line "...died with his (or her) boots on." It's a great statement about living your life to the fullest and believing in the things that really matter like love and honor. The actors were fabulous. I think young Haley Joel Osment has a lot to offer films and I hope we see much more of him in the future. Michael Caine never disappoints me and I love his Texas accent in the film. Overall, this is truly one movie fit for all ages. A true heartwarming film with a great message for anyone who will hear it.
