Trivia

During production, several strange coincidences occurred: director Spike Carpenter attempted two separate newspaper crossword puzzles each with "Author of 'The Gold Bug'" as a question; a real gold-colored beetle appeared on the set of Legrand's cottage; and the Quedagh Merchant, a ship abandoned by Captain Kidd in 1699, was found by divers off Catalina Island.

Goofs

When Perry and Jupiter travel across the channel to see Legrand, they leave his scythe and shovels in the boat. In the next scene, Legrand hands these same tools to Perry and Jupiter for their expedition to find Captain Kidd's buried treasure. See more »
