Trivia

This is the only show where Heyes and Curry share exactly zero screen time together, although both interact with the female lead (Heyes is in about two-thirds of the show and then narrates a flashback to when Curry met the lady). The reason was that 'Pete Deuel' and Ben Murphy were each busy on other series episodes where they mostly work separately from each other, and the filming schedule and script were altered so two different crews could film each of them completing a show for broadcast. (Except for "The Ten Days that Shook Kid Curry" in the third season, where Curry is kidnapped and Heyes must track him down, the two never spent significant time away from each other again.)

Two years BEFORE Newman & Redford in "The Sting..." (possible spoiler)
6 October 2015 | by (Florida, USA) – See all my reviews

...Heyes and Curry resort to the (now-obsolete) wire scam - Google it, for details, if you aren't familiar with it - to exact revenge upon a woman who had betrayed Curry to the authorities for the reward out on him. The territorial governor had suggested to our heroes that the return of the reward money would aid greatly in their quest for amnesty; the afore-mentioned woman had helped Curry escape from jail AFTER collecting the reward, and the people who paid the reward were justifiably irritated at being swindled. (It was ten grand, a sizeable sum at the time.)

Heyes "just happens" to encounter the woman and pass her broken carriage on the road...they go out to dinner...and she finds a "lost" wallet with $600 and some cryptic notes on the back of a presentation card. (They also were known in that day as cartes de visite, or calling cards.)

And...we're off to the races!

As I intimated in the title, those of you who have seen the 1973 movie "The Sting" will catch on pretty quickly when the wallet is returned to its owner, and he gratefully extends a favor to Heyes and the lady. The rest of you will figure it out. ALL of you will enjoy it. The end is predictable...how we get there is anything BUT.
