People paying foreign-money 'dollars' to see the charity show
According to "Fun Stuff>Goofs," the foreign money shown is Mexican pesos, and this is a "mistake" in filming. I'll take somebody's word about the money being Mexican. But I don't think that this is a mistake, like a boom mike in the shot is a mistake, because the camera goes close up on that money. What director flimflams the audience, and then reveals his flimflam with a closeup?
Does anybody know what the counterfeiting laws were in 1935? It might be that Warner Bros. was forbidden bylaw to show American bills on screen. (But *were* allowed to show an American quarter.)
