Storyline

Charlie O'Rourke, a friend of Heyes and Curry from their outlaw days, is about to be hanged for a robbery which resulted in several deaths. He recognizes Heyes and Curry from his jail-cell window and offers them a map to the gold bars he stole, wanting that to be his "legacy" to them. The boys decline, but others -- including Bannerman detective Harry Briscoe -- steal the map and head after the gold. In the interests of staying honest and turning the tables on Briscoe, an old foe who might be a friend, the boys start trailing the gold hunters. Written by Peter Harris

Goofs

Hannibal quoted the price of gold at $21 per ounce, and $333 per pound. But gold is measured in "troy ounces", and there are 12 troy ounces in a pound- not 16. So the per-pound price is actually $252. And even if there were 16 ounces of gold per pound, $21 X 16 = $336 not $333. See more »
