Listen, Brett, we didn't steal this money. We took it in battle, fair and square. It's what they call "spoils of war", like capturing a horse or anything else. We didn't know the war was over, and neither did the Federals. So it's still prize money.

This is definatley one of Elvis Presley's best movies. The plot is great, and a very strong supporting cast. When I see this movie, it's hard to believe that this is the same person who played in some of those pathetic movies later.
