The Man with the Golden Arm (1955 film) US currency - real or fake?
The 1955 film "Man with the Golden Arm" is about a former drug addict, played by Frank Sinatra, who tries to reform his life.
He works as a poker dealer and there are scenes of two poker games showing coins and US bills on the table.
The coins are real United States coins and I believe that the bills are real United States currency notes.
1. First poker game
On the table are $5 bills, lots of quarters (25 cent coins), and at least one half dollar.
The quarters above the $5 bills are of the Washington type obverse minted since 1932.
2. First poker game
On the table is a pile of $1 bills, some half dollars, and some quarters.
The half dollar reverse on the $1 bill appears to be of the Franklin type bell reverse minted since 1948.
3. Second poker game
On the table is a pile of bills, they are $20 bills (a few), $50 bills, and $100 bills.
There was a US Treasury Department regulation which prohibited motion pictures from showing real money which was repealed in 1960.
