Dillinger -- True-life story of gangster John Dillinger. His violent life of crime made headline news in the thirties, and he robbed banks across the Midwest.

John Dillinger: What's bitin' you, Homer?
Homer Van Meter: [indicates newspaper] This. You've got FBI heat on you, John. You're getting too popular - that's makes us all too popular. So, if you don't mind, I'm cutting out of here tomorrow.
