Sage, known as the "Woman in Red," told authorities that she, Dillinger, and Dillinger's girlfriend Polly Hamilton Keele would be at the movies and to look for her dressed in red. Some reports say Sage was actually dressed in orange. — Chicago Tribune…

Guards surround the courthouse and jail in Crown Point, Ind., as they wait for John Dillinger's arrival. A few months earlier Dillinger had escaped from jail in Lima, Ohio with the help of members of his gang. Authorities feared his gang would attempt to rescue their leader a second time.
John Herbert Dillinger was born June 22, 1903, in Indianapolis, Indiana. As a child he went by "Johnnie." As an adult he was known as "Jackrabbit" for his graceful moves and quick getaways from the police. As a legend, he was known as "Public Enemy Number One." His exploits during the depth of the Great Depression made him a headline news celebrity and one of the most feared gangsters of the 20th century.
