Treasury Department agent Burt Lancaster gets handed an unusual case: find the counterfeiter who despite printing poor copies of the $1 bill with the name "Washington" misspelled, has eluded the authorities for a decade. Investigating a recent incident where U.N. translator Dorothy McGuire was passed a few fake bucks, Lancaster gets his man: elderly gentleman (and McGuire neighbor) Edmund Gwenn, who swears he only makes enough "funny money" to support himself. Based on a true story, Robert Riskin's final produced screenplay is a quirky charmer. DIR Edmund Goulding; SCR Robert Riskin, from "Annals of Crime" articles in The New Yorker by St. Clair McKelway; PROD Julian Blaustein. U.S., 1950, b&w, 90 min. NOT RATED
