    TRANSCRIPT: SINATRA: WELL, THEY WERE PRETTY SPECTACULAR AS FAR AS I AM CONCERNED, BECAUSE WE WERE FOLLOWING TELEPHONE CALLS FROM ONE POSITION TO ANOTHER, AND GASOLINE STATION, AND STRANGE INSTRUCTIONS. TOO MANY IN ONE EVENING TO REMEMBER. AS I SAID BEFORE - FORGIVE ME , I'M EXCITED - THE BASIC STATEMENTS WILL BE MADE BY THE FBI TOMORROW, I SHOULD IMAGINE.I DOUBT IF THEY WILL MAKE IT. BUT WE'LL JUST THROW OUT THAT WE'RE GLAD HE'S BACK, THAT THE RANSOM'S PAID, AND THAT EVERYBODY'S GATHERED UP WITHOUT ANYBODY GETTING HURT, WHICH IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING OF ALL.



    QUESTION: HOW MUCH WAS THE RANSOM?



    SINATRA: THE RANSOM WAS 240,000 DOLLARS.
