A 1930s-gangster in classic form. By the spring of 1934, famous criminals ran rampant throughout the US. John Dillinger, Bonnie and Clyde, Pretty Boy Floyd, Baby Face Nelson and the Barker-Karpis gang seemingly robbed and killed at will. They were too clever to be outwitted, too cool under pressure to lose in shootouts against any pursuers - or so the public was led to believe.

"Baby Face" Nelson was born Lester M. Gillis on December 6, 1908, in Chicago, Illinois. He roamed the Chicago streets with a gang of juvenile hoodlums during his early teens. By the age of 14, he was an accomplished car thief and had been dubbed "Baby Face" by members of his gang due to his juvenile appearance. Nelson's early criminal career included stealing tires, running stills, bootlegging, and armed robbery.
