This first episode in the series, which is obviously an imitation of "Peter Gunn", not just the jazz music but Slade's entire manner, in addition to the plain film noir atmosphere, has certain unlikely points. First, that the villains, after this clever heist of a huge sum in gold coin, seem amazingly ready to trust a total stranger. But the main fault is that they are equating a modern crime, passing counterfeit or stolen money, which usually has to be disposed of at a discount, with gold coin. All that you would have to do is MELT DOWN the coins, and the gold would be totally untraceable, and could be disposed of with no discount. It is as if they used a modern day crime plot and didn't bother to adapt it for an old west setting.
