A drifter named Beaudray Demerille wins a young orphan named Wanda in a poker game and takes her gold prospecting in the Grand Canyon.
Peter Fonda is wearing the pendant part of a Purple Heart medal on a thong around his neck, visible in many scenes.
What are you prospectin'?
Beaudray Demerille: Oh, ah, silver...
Wanda Nevada: ...and gold!
Beaudray Demerille: Shh!
Old Prospector: Everyone knows there ain't no gold in the Grand Canyon!
When Beaudray Demerille (Peter Fonda) climbs down the rope to enter the cave with the gold, as the camera watches from his left side he pulls a flashlight out of his belt with his left hand (Fonda is left-handed) and aims it into the cave and starts to take his first step toward the cave, then in the next shot from inside the cave looking at him head-on as he is taking his first step toward the cave, the flashlight has switched to his right hand.
