July 22 - 1934 - John Dillinger is Shot Outside the Biograph Theater

John Dillinger was a bank robber who was an expert at avoiding capture and escaping from jail when he was captured, which made him Public Enemy Number 1.  By 1934, Federal Agents from the Bureau of Investigation were desperate to capture him. Holing up with a prostitute in Chicago, Dillinger was turned over to the Feds by the Romanian immigrant madam he was occasionally hanging out with. After seeing a movie at the Biograph Theater, Federal Agents moved in on Dillinger, shooting him in the alley behind the theater. Despite successfully getting their man, the FBI did not do the best job imaginable.
