Dillinger (1991)

Dillinger is a 1991 made-for-TV movie that stars Mark Harmon as the infamous bank robber John Dillinger and Sherilyn Fenn as his girlfriend Billie Frechette. Will Patton appeared in the film as FBI agent Melvin Purvis, and Bruce Abbott as fellow bank robber Harry Pierpont. An interesting note is that Lawrence Tierney, who played Dillinger in a 1945 film, appears in this version as Sheriff Jess Sarber, who was shot by Pierpont while breaking Dillinger out of an Ohio jail in October 1933. This version is one of the few to depict Dillinger's entire criminal career from his initial release from prison up until his death. Other films such as the 1973 version of Dillinger and 2009's Public Enemies begin with Dillinger already an experienced criminal with a hardened gang.

Since the film isn't commercial available yet in the United States on DVD, some low-resolution screencaps have been taken from Youtube videos and other clips from the film available online in order to illustrate weapons used in different scenes of the film.

The following weapons were used in the film Dillinger (1991):

Smith & Wesson Model 10

John Dillinger (Mark Harmon) and several of his gang members use Smith & Wesson Model 10 revolvers throughout the film. During Dillinger's infamous escape from Crown Point jail in Indiana, he takes a Model 10 from Alvin (Mike McKune), a jail guard.
