Yes, that was a rare dose of reality - it's not as if, even back in the dark ages of 1965, that someone could take a stolen cargo consisting of truckloads of gold, safely make it to the Canadian border, and then be home free. Unless he then buried it in the snow...

However, it did include Pussy Galore and Plenty O'Toole.
