While searching for the man who framed him for a crime he didn't commit, Destry stumbles into a town where an old cell mate of his is being tried for robbery and murder. The outlaw has hidden the loot and offers to reveal the location to Destry who doesn't wish to be trailed by detectives trying to recover the mine's stolen gold for the rest of his days. Instead the outlaw provides the location to a gold digging saloon singer.
Did You Know?
I keep thinking about all that gold. You know, Destry, in a while we're going to be very rich - very, very rich.
Or on our way to prison. That is stolen gold, Patience. Do you have any idea what it's like to be behind bars?
You sound as if you've been there... behind bars.
A couple of years at hard labor.
What had you done?
Nothin'. A fellow framed me for kinda stealin' his girl. He stole $900 from the man I was workin' for and put it under my mattress... fellow named Charlie Bent. Ever seen ...
