Synopsis by Hal Erickson
It's "Maltese Falcon", Hazzard-style, when Bo (John Schneider) and Luke (Tom Wopat) purchase an old vase from the Widow Partridge (Elizabeth Kerr) for ten dollars. When it is revealed that the vase is extremely valuable, Boss Hogg (Sorrell Booke) vows to get his mitts on it--if he can locate the elusive artifact, which has passed through many hands since the original transaction. Complicating matters is the presence of a Sidney Greenstreet-style art connoisseur (Byron Webster) who will stop at nothing to claim the vase. And how did Sheriff Roscoe (James Best) end up behind the wheel of the "General Lee"? Originally scheduled to air on March 13, 1981, this episode ultimately aired as The Dukes of Hazzard's third-season finale.
