John Dillinger's story is ironic. Legend has it he robbed banks under the guise of shooting a movie and analyzed bank security systems by saying he was location scouting for films. He enjoyed going to the pictures and seeing clips about 'Public Enemy #1', himself, on the big screen. America's first 'Hollywood Criminal' eventually met his demise at a night out at the Biograph Theater in Chicago, IL
In 1938 Clyde (Bonnie & Clyde) wrote a letter to the Ford Motor Company: " Dear Sir: While I still have got breath in my lungs I will tell you what a dandy car you make. I have drove Fords exclusively when I could get away with one. For sustained speed and freedom from trouble the Ford has got ever other car skinned and even if my business hasen't been strickly legal it don't hurt anything to tell you what a fine car you got in the V8 -- Yours truly Clyde Champion Barrow "
