Learn how J. Edgar Hoover exploited the legend of the famed outlaw to his own advantage, and meet the man whose bullet killed the American Robin Hood.

He grew up in rural Oklahoma on a cotton farm, the latest in a long line of farmers and moonshiners. But his dreams and the depression took him off the farm and into history. Charley Floyd always dreamed of a life beyond the family farm. The bitter circumstances of the '20s propelled him on a collision course with the law and legend.

BIOGRAPHY® takes to the back roads of depression era America on the trail of "Pretty Boy" Floyd, whose career as an American Robin Hood made earned him the title of Public Enemy #1. Rare footage and period accounts highlight the career of the bank robber who bailed countless sharecroppers and farmers out of trouble. Historians reveal how J. Edgar Hoover played up the accomplishments of Floyd to further his own star, and Floyd's son and nephews share family stories of the famous outlaw.

Join BIOGRAPHY® for the gripping story of a man who believed that banks robbed men with pens, and who used guts and a gun to even up the score.
