Do they use real money in movies and on tv? For example, i'm watching Curb your enthusiasm and Larry is doing some part for this movie and he's slapping people with money and tossing money around and they're on top of a skyscraper. What i'm wondering is, do they use real money? If they are printing the money for the money, isn't that illegal (if so, i'm sure they have had some agreement with the Treasury Department)? Anyone know the deal?
