On a dismal afternoon in December, 1895, outlaw Bill Doolins droopy mustache drooped more than usual. He was in the Guthrie, Oklahoma, jail, facing the unpleasant prospects of either swinging from a rope or confiding to a guard the location of some of his buried loot. His troves, estimated at $75,000 to $100,000, were accumulated at great risk, and the bandit would as soon part with his life as tell where they were.

Even so, Doolin was scheming to find a way to use his buried gold to gain his freedom. Doolin counted on the guards greed to enable him to break out when darkness fell.
