Two versions of the opening credits exists. The first half of the credits feature the word GOLD in huge chunky letters on a black background. Within the letters, film has been optically added, showing gold being mined, processed, made into bars and finally, as a selection of jewellery. In the rough cut version, the final shot shows a woman's hand gliding into frame and selecting one of the pieces of jewellery. In the correct version, this is replaced by a slow zoom away from jewellery on a black velvet display. The rough cut also has Giulgud, Milland and Dillman billed at the same time, whereas the correct version has each actor billed separately. ITV in the UK always show the 'hand' version of the credits, although the DVD features the other version.
