Also on hand is a fabricated Scotland Yard operative who is a phony, and has two others assisting him in an effort to throw the police department off the trail; they are trying to exhort $250,000 from a young rich man who is trying to marry a senator's daughter. A submarine gets involved. Written by

The money in the small bag handed over to the three men in the boat, although in fake currency, appears to be mostly $1 bills - in bundles marked $1,000, though in stacks to small for that amount in singles. Even with $1,000 bundles there would have to be 250 of them and only about a tenth of that is shown in the small bag. $250,000 in $1 bills would also weigh about 550 pounds. See more
