Thursday, June 18, Johnny Depp and Co. walked the red carpet for Chicago’s premiere of Public Enemies. The notorious bank robber, John Dillinger, was shot less than 5 miles away at the Lincoln Park theater–nearly 75 years ago.
Dillinger was a charismatic man. He was being cheered for back then and I’m sure it will happen again now with all the fat cat factors everyone is dealing with nowadays.
Depp, who was the last to arrive, joined fellow stars Bale, Marion Cotillard, director Michael Mann (a Chicago-native), and a crowd of about 600 fans. [Gallery of the premiere available at The Chicago Tribune.]
Public Enemies opens July 1, 2009.
