Famous 30s gangster John Dillinger will be dead in 5 minutes. Where does America's Most Wanted decide to go the night he dies? To see Clark Gable in Manhattan Melodrama. An unusual move for the savvy bank robber unless, of course, that's how he wanted it to go.
The Good Escape was inspired by the capture and killing of John Dillinger in the Chicago Biograph Theatre several months after he had been held up in Hotel Congress.
