I was raised on a farm in Moooresville, Indiana. My mama died when I was three, my daddy beat the hell out of me cause he didn't know no better way to raise me. I like baseball, movies, good clothes, fast cars, whiskey, and you... what else you need to know?
~ John Dillinger to Billie Frechette, while saying his backstory.

John Herbert Dillinger, Jr. is the main protagonist of Public Enemies (2009). He is shown to be a gangster and criminal. He was played by Johnny Depp.

The movie begins in 1933 as John Dillinger is brought to Indiana State Prison by his partner John "Red" Hamilton, under the disguise of a prisoner drop, with Dillinger himself as the prisoner. Several of his gang members — Charles Makley, Harry Pierpont, Ed Shouse, Homer Van Meter and Walter Dietrich — have acquired guns smuggled into the prison inside boxes of thread sent to the prison's shirt factory. And at the same time, Dillinger and Hamilton held a prison warden at gunpoint, forcing him to open the prison door. During the prison break, as Dillinger forces the guards to take off their uniforms, everything goes as planned until Shouse suddenly beats one of the guards to death. This also results in another guard getting shot. A shootout ensues between Dillinger and his gang as he ran away to their getaway car. Unfortunately, Dietrich was shot and mortally wounded by a sniper on the wall just as he was about to get into Dillinger's car. In retaliation, Dillinger kicks Shouse out of the car.
