Award-winning director Michael Mann (Last of the Mohicans, Heat, Collateral) transports audiences back to the era of the 1930s American gangster in the critically acclaimed crime saga Public Enemies – hitting DVD on Dec. 8th from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. M&C’s giving away five copies of the DVD and five Public Enemies bottle openers!
In Public Enemies, acclaimed filmmaker Michael Mann directs Johnny Depp, Christian Bale and Academy Award winner Marion Cotillard in the story of legendary outlaw John Dillinger (Depp) — the charismatic bank robber whose lightning raids made him the number one target of J. Edgar Hoover’s fledgling FBI and its top agent, Melvin Purvis (Bale), and a folk hero to much of the downtrodden public. No one could stop John Dillinger and his gang.
No jail could hold him. His charm and audacious jailbreaks endeared him to almost everyone - from his girlfriend Billie Frechette (Cotillard) to an American public who had no sympathy for the banks that had plunged the country into the Great Depression.
But while the adventures of Dillinger’s gang—later including the sociopathic Baby Face Nelson (Stephen Graham) and Alvin Karpis (Giovanni Ribisi) - thrilled many, J. Edgar Hoover (Billy Crudup) hit on the idea of exploiting the outlaw’s capture as a way to elevate his Bureau of Investigation into the national police force that became the FBI.
He made Dillinger America’s first Public Enemy No. 1 and sent in Purvis, the dashing “Clark Gable of the FBI,’’ to bring him down. But Dillinger and his gang outwitted and outgunned Purvis’ men in wild chases and shootouts.
Only after importing a crew of Western ex-lawmen (newly baptized as agents) and orchestrating epic betrayals—from the infamous “Lady in Red’’ to the Chicago crime boss Frank Nitti - were Purvis, the FBI and their new crew of gunfighters able to close in on Dillinger.
