John Dillinger never saw another picture like it. (Come on, you knew someone was going to say it.)

When I was a kid watching westerns the baddies had thick dark moustaches. In romantic films they had thin dark moustaches, and they were the most frightful cads too. I don't think Dillinger had a mo at all, but the brothel madam who sold him out probably did. You can never trust a brothel madam, they're just one rung up from clairvoyants.

Yeah, Dillinger had a 'stache.
