Manhattan Melodrama (1934)

Another post from guest blogger Debbie...

This quickly made, low budget film directed by Woody Van Dyke II , has become legendary for two reasons.

Reason #1:  It was the start of the thirteen year, fourteen film pairing of William Powell and Myrna Loy.

Reason #2:  It was the film that on July 22, 1934 lured bank robber John Dillinger out in public and subsequently to his death.

We should all be eternally grateful for both reasons.
