What movie did John Dillinger see the night he was ambushed by the FBI?

At least John Dillinger saw a good movie before he died.

Manhattan Melodrama, starring Clark Gable, William Powell, Myrna Loy, and Mickey Rooney, was the name of the movie.

It’s about two boyhood pals, one of whom becomes a gangster, and the other a policeman.

The movie’s still good fun. We give it 37 stars, just be careful who you watch it with.
