John Dillinger reached out from the grave and stole the last three weeks of my life. I traveled to Crown Point, I spent a day in Mooresville. I spent a full eight hours sifting through archived stories in the Star’s vertical file. I drove to Chicago for a press screening for “Public Enemies” only to find out that it was the world premiere. It’s been fun, it’s been maddening, and after this weekend, it’ll be over.
This week’s Metromix contains my exploration of myths surrounding the man, my interview with Marion Cotillard and two photo galleries – one focusing on significant landmarks and one roundup of places where Dillinger got his drank on locally.
If you have the time or interest, poke around. There’s more to come. I need a drink – thankfully I’ll be going to the Vollrath tomorrow night.
