Johnnie DBook - 2000
John Dillinger's reign as Public Enemy #1 began at the height of the depression. Banks were closing and millions of Americans were losing their life savings. Dillinger's act made him a sort of hero, a modern day Robin Hood. He would go on to rob ten banks and break out of two jails. Everything he did, whether it be firing a Tommy gun or relieving smitten bank tellers of the cash in their vaults, he did it with style.Brought to life by Arthur Winfield Knight through the magic of fiction, the voices of the past emerge to vividly recount the renegade's story. Sixty-five years after Dillinger's death, Knight proves that his story is still the most charged and gutsy of the 1920's.
