    FACTUALLY INACCURATE. Pretty Boy Floyd was NOT shot by Purvis. He was shot by Retired Officer Chester K. Smith of East Liverpoool Ohio PD on October 22, 1934. Floyd only had 2 .45s, not a machine gun. Smith did alleged that Purvis did order the murder Floyd after Floyd after hew tried to get some questions about theh Kansas City Massacre, but Purvis denied this. Baby Face Nelson was killed long after Dillinger, not as he was escaping the Little Bohemia firefight, which offurred April, 1934. His wife dumped his body naked and in a blanket, on 11/27/1934 after a gunfight with 2 agents whyo he did iioll. She was hoping he could not be indentified and she was cencerned that he might get cold. Van Meter was killed in a shootout with St. Paul Minn 08/23/1934 Police long after Little Bohemia. Dillinger died 07/22/1934. The show as entertaining with the gungfights, but the deaths oif the main characters was totally inaccurate.

    what a disappointment...this movie was terrible. shot in our home state, Wisconsin, this film was 'let's walk out" within 10 minutes. I love Johnny Depp...but this film did nothing to add to his resume.
