Goodbye to the Biograph Marquee - And To An Era

[ Sensationalism after Little Bohemia ]


The marquee at Chicago's legendary Biography Theater has been removed. It is temporarily being held in a lot in Chicago. Hopefully, the Chicago Historical Society will be able to obtain this amazing, long-standing symbol of Dillinger. [ John Dillinger, Federal fugitive ]

This site is created to take a look at the molls of the Dillinger era. Called "paramours" by F.B.I. agents, the historical relevance of the 1930s gun moll was lost to parody and sterotype through movies and pulp comic books.

This site attempts to reclaim their history as it demystifies Mary Kinder, Helen Gillis, Pat Cherrington, and their female accomplices.

Tune in for the January, 2007 feature article, "Captain John Stege." John Stege, a policeman who worked tirelessly within Chicago's Legendary Dillinger Squad, also spent many hours in the company of the Dillinger molls.

Forthcoming in January, 2007. 1
