I'm pretty sure that I've seen that cited in previous threads as a prime example of an inaccurate Hollywood depiction. The way Kelly waves around a gold bar one-handed and other guys pick up crates ostensibly full of gold like they weigh nothing is not particularly convincing.

But maybe I'm being whooshed.
