Storyline

July 22, 1934 - outside Chicago's Biograph Theater, a barrage of FBI bullets brings down John Dillinger. As the body of Public Enemy Number one crumbles to the ground, one of the strangest, most riveting stories in the history of crime begins to unfold. It seems that J. Edgar Hoover's boys have unknowingly blown away the wrong Dillinger -- not John, but his brother. While G-Men are grabbing the headlines, the real Dillinger slips away to go straight with a new life. But "Scarface" Al Capone knows all about Dillinger and his secret new identity, and confronts him. He wants Dillinger to pull one more heist, a bank where Capone has millions stashed away. And he's got an offer Dillinger can't refuse. So now, five years after his death, with Chicago's most infamous mobster holding his wife and son for insurance, John Dillinger has to pull off the biggest bank job of all time. Written by Concorde - New Horizons (with permission).

Trivia

This film integrates two popular "conspiracy theories" of gangster folklore: that John Dillinger didn't really die at the Biograph (for years, no one bought the idea that the FBI had killed him because the face was different and the man weighed more but this was easily explained by Dillinger having plastic surgery and just natural weight gain) and that Al Capone had hidden away a fortune somewhere in Chicago. (Geraldo Rivera did an expose in which he did in fact find the vault...but it was empty) See more »

Goofs

Near the one-hour mark, Capone talks to his butler on the phone. He fires his gun, and the upper part of it slides back, indicating that it's empty. A few seconds and a cut later, however, the slide is back and he fires more shots with the gun, even though he had no opportunity to reload. See more »

Good gangster film
14 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

fictional account about Capone and dillinger.martin sheen plays john dillinger(who survived the shooting at the movie theater)like i said fictional.he wants to go straight and leave the life of crime behind. AL Capone(f Murray Abraham)has other plans.he kidnaps Dillinger's wife(Catherine hicks)and son to force him to rob the gangsters that have all his stolen money.along for the ride is don stroud,Sasha Jensen,Jeffrey combs,Bert remsen,and maria ford.its a roger corman produced gangster movie that delivers.OK its not the untouchables or scarface but its a good exciting gangster b movie,made by Concorde/new horizons.the sequel sort of is baby face nelson that starred c Thomas Howell and f Murray Abraham as Capone again.the music on the sound rack is very good.i would put this in a class with big bad mama,and bloody mama.i did enjoy this movie,maybe because I'm a Roger Corman fan,even though there's a few Corman movies i did'nt like,for instance;carnosaur. I'm giving dillinger and Capone 8 out of 10.it rocks!
