Trivia

The shoot required 2 maroon 1934 Ford sedans to facilitate the photography of the TV project. One borrowed from a local car collector for regular driving scenes. The other reconstructed from a parts car by the Transportation Department and local hot rod shops. This Ford sedan would do the dangerous stunt driving, and accommodate the damage caused explosive squibs used to create bullet holes during takes by the SFX department. The borrowed 1934 Ford Dillinger car was kept in mint condition. Also used in the making of this TV movie was a black 1934 Ford borrowed from a local car collector, used as an FBI vehicle in the scene where agents machine gunned down Eddie Green. This black car was again used in the filming of another Dillinger saga called "Public Enemies" almost 20yrs later in some of the same areas of Wisconsin. See more »

Goofs

During the chase scene, following the bank robbery in Chicago, the camera pulls back to show the entire chase from a roof top in Milwaukee. In the distance, at the top of the screen, you can see the Phister Hotel Tower, which is a tall, round art-deco type style building. It was opened for business in the early 1970's. See more »

A Decent "Dillinger" Presentation
24 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

I have all three movies (that I'm aware of) that are called "Dillinger" and have been available for purchase on either VHS or DVD. Of the three, this is by far the least known....but it's a pretty good one, as are the other two. (So "least known" that I am only reviewer of this movie as of March, 2006!)

The pluses are nice color (It won an award for its cinematography) .and a great period piece featuring the 1920s. It also had Sheriyn Fenn, who is never hard on my eyes. It also had a distinct lack of profanity, unlike the '73 version, but this was a made-for-TV version.

There was only fault, albeit a big one: Mark Harmon as Dillinger just wasn't quite believable. He's too much of a pretty boy to be a hard-nosed criminal like John Dillinger. Warren Oates and Lawrence Tierney, the other guys who played the role. looked the part.

Even though there was no nudity, it's fairly steamy for a made-for-TV movie. It also was interesting to see Dr. Ben Casey of past TV fame (Vince Edwards) after all these years. He played J. Edgar Hoover in a minor role here. Also in the film are Patricia Arquette and Will Patton. It's a decent gangster movie overall and worth seeing again. I hope it comes out on DVD.
