After finding her unmentionables and a Bible, Kid cracks that the Bible is proof the bags were switched. Hannibal then discovers $5 million in jewelry hidden within the Bible. They visit Oscar Harlingen, the millionaire and return the jewels to him, with his thanks. Later, Harlingen's son Allen (Severn Darden in a dual role; he appears to use a pseudonym for playing Allen) practices appraising the jewels. They look phony to him, so his exasperated father shows him how to evaluate gems. Oops. They really ARE phony. Oscar Harlingen wastes no time gathering up a posse to go after Heyes and Curry. What nobody except the secretary and her boyfriend -- the leader of the posse -- know is that she is the thief, having switched out the jewels earlier. The posse leader uncharitably hires two hit men to assassinate Heyes and Curry once he's found them, and split the jewels with the young woman. When one of the hit men recognizes Heyes and Curry, he refuses to go through with the murder contract and cold-cocks the other gunman. In the ensuing fracas, the posse leader is accidentally killed. The men track down the secretary (Marj Dusay), who claims Oscar Harlingen stole the jewels from her father when they were partners. It's not true. The price for the secretary to stay out of prison is to marry Allen Harlingen, who is sweet on her. Written by Peter Harris See less
