Some Facts
Although John's last name is pronounced "Dillin-grrr" by the press and public (like the "derringer" pistol), his last name is actually pronounced "Dil-linger" with a hard "G" sound as the family has a German heritage.
Chicago's Biograph cinema closed its doors for the final time on July 13th, 1974. Some forty years to the day of his death (22nd July, 1934) outside its doors.
Some sources say 22 June 1903 as date of birth
John Dillinger was due to meet up with Baby Face Nelson and Homer Van Meter on July 23rd, 1934 - the day after he was killed. They were supposed to meet with Chicago fixer Jimmy Murray to go over the details of a proposed million dollar train robbery. Murray had previously masterminded the train robbery at Roundout, Illinois committed by The Newton Brothers (as seen in the film "The Newton Boys"). However, once Dillinger was killed, the train robbery was abandoned.
Insisted that all the members of his gang address him by his first name.
