The United States Bullion Depository, as it is officially named, at Fort Knox, Kentucky, was brand new at the time of this film, having been completed in December, 1936, with the first gold shipments occurring from January to July, 1937. It was made necessary due to President Roosevelt's executive order in 1933 that made it illegal for U.S. citizens to own gold coins, bullion or gold certificates. All of that gold had to be turned into the federal government, increasing its stockpile from $4B to $12B in the span of four years. This order was not repealed until 1974. See more
