John Dillinger and the Biograph Theater

John Dillinger walked out of the Biograph Theater on July 22, 1934. Upon seeing the FBI agents assembled outside the building, Dillinger dashed into a nearby alley where he was fatally shot three times. Some believe it was not actually Dillinger, but a close friend named Jimmy Lawrence who met his demise in the alley. Regardless, it's said that each night one can see a misty blue figure run through the alley and fall to the ground before vanishing in thin air. Tribune photo by Michael Tercha
