Never-before-seen photos and film footage highlight this definitive portrait of ''Public Enemy #1.'' He entered jail a kid who'd copped to a big mistake, and left it a hardened con with a vast knowledge of bank robbing. He applied his skills in one of the most famous crime sprees in history.

John Dillinger grew up like most other Midwest kids, but his life took disastrous turn when he allowed his wild side get the better of him in a robbery attempt. He admitted his crime and was rewarded with an extremely harsh sentence.

BIOGRAPHY® reveals how his time in jail turned him into a hardened criminal with the knowledge to wreak some havoc. Starting in 1933 he committed a string of bank robberies that got his name in papers nationwide and earned him the undying enmity of the fledgling FBI. In rare archival photos and footage, his criminal career is revisited, including the jailbreaks that cemented his place in folklore. From the first brushes with the law to his death outside Chicago's Biograph Theatre, the myths and truths of his life are exposed.

BIOGRAPHY® profiles the captivating outlaw whose name, face, and demeanor would come to symbolize the fascination of a nation with crime.
