An iconic wood-chipper, commemorative snow globes and an original screenplay from the movie “Fargo” — all that and more is on display at a shrine to the Oscar-winning film in Fargo, North Dakota.
The Fargo-Moorhead Convention & Visitors Bureau used to have another movie prop as well: stacks of fake cash, used in filming the 1996 black comedy about a ransom plot gone awry.
But then a Minneapolis-based Secret Service agent stumbled upon the imitation cash in June as she was traveling in Fargo during President Trump’s visit to the state, according to Charley Johnson, president and CEO of the visitors bureau. The agent confronted staff and told them that harboring the fake money (which said “movie money” on it) was against the law, Johnson said in a phone interview.
