Show Description
Shep opens show speaking over the opening theme A Warning the show is to be a Cheapy deepy or a deepy cheapy. UPI note: Miami - Al Capone's son not living up to expectations. Chicago Gangsters, and the fact that people in Chicago never talked about gangsters. Dillinger Fan Clubs, where Shep would visit famous crime scenes. Red Hamilton, Dillenger's right hand man, and visits to the Michigan City State Pen in Indiana in hopes of seeing an escape. Babyface Nelson and the history of these guys as country bumpkins, not city types. Dillinger's first arrest was over a simple fist fight over money. Dillinger got to the state pen based on his ability to play shortstop. Shep teaches us how to make a rubber gun as a part of playing a game. The Dillinger escape using a gun made from a bar of soap.
