MORE ON 'PUBLIC ENEMIES' FILMING

[Last week Jeff Reichenberger mentioned the new movie "Public
Enemies" which is currently filming at a number of locations
around the country.  The old First National Bank building in
Jeff's town of Oshkosh, WI will be one of those locations.
David Kranz of Numismatic News discussed the film in his blog
Tuesday.  Here are some excerpts. -Editor]

Big news in Wisconsin, home to the Bank Note Reporter offices,
is that the film Public Enemies is currently shooting at
locations all around the state. The film is about John Dillinger,
Pretty Boy Floyd, Baby Face Nelson and others who were part of
the crime wave of 1933-1934. The film is based on the book by
Bryan Burrough titled Public Enemies: America's Greatest Crime
Wave and the Birth of the FBI, 1933-34.

Tomorrow filming reportedly continues in my old hometown of
Darlington, Wis.

How is this numismatic? Well, I've been known to acquire a
National Bank Note or two from Darlington...  And, like many
National Bank Note collectors, I've always hoped Mark Hotz
would swing through the town on one of his national bank tours
for his Bank Note Reporter columns. I may have to revamp my
1999 article on Darlington NBNs for use when the film comes out.

Maybe I see the root of a neat exhibit here: Nationals from
the towns where the film was shot.

[Dave also asked about prop money.  There's certain to be a
need for stage money in filming; hopefully what the producers
come up with will closely resemble the circulating cash of the day.

Mark Hotz has been writing a long-running series of articles
in Bank Note Reporter featuring pictures and stories of national
Banks around the country.  I hope someone compiles them into a
book someday.  -Editor]
