Public Enemies (2009)


Public Enemies (2009)

In 2004, Bryan Burrough wrote a book titled “Public Enemies: America’s Greatest Crime Wave and the Birth of the FBI, 1933-34“.

John Dillinger was one of the criminals featured in the book, which focused on the Great Depression era in America.

Public Enemies is loosely based on the events covered in Burrough’s book.

A tragic tale of love, crime and friendship, the movie is a favorite with many lovers of real crime movies.

The romance between John Dillinger and Billie Frechette, the friendships both in and out of prison, and the relentless FBI chase makes this movie an interesting watch for everyone.

The Billie Holiday songs heard on the radio were not recorded until the late thirties, long after John Dillinger's death. She had recorded only two songs before the time of the film, Your Mother's Son-in-law and Riffin' the Scotch, neither of which are heard in it. (When Dillinger died in July 1934 Holiday was a little-known cabaret singer in New York, so it's unlikely a live show of hers would have been broadcast anywhere, let alone as far from her home base as Chicago.)
