    Oshkosh/Johnny Depp





    The film crew installed this contour billboard to cover-up the south end of Main Street. The bill board looks like concrete, but is made of plywood, then sprayed dry wall cement on it's surface. The sign looks very pretty, till it was sprayed with dirt to look like it would in Depression era Chicago.






    In April 1927, the First National Bank building, located in Oshkosh at Main and Washington opened. This was the third building constructed on this site. It was an eight-story, bank and office building that cost $550,000.

    North Main Street/Algoma Boulevard/Market Street will be Sioux Falls, S.D., where John Dillinger and Baby Face Nelson robbed the Security National Bank and Trust Co. on March 6, 1934.




    Johnny Depp is one of the better "young" actors.For a few Wisconsin days , he was as as popular and talked about as much as Bret Farve

    Arrow The Making of a Blockbuster Movie




    The making of the movie Public Enemies was an eye opening experience for me. It was cool to see the movie company putting up props and getting ready to shot the movie. I was under the wrong impression that much of the movie was made on a computer. The above photo was taken across from the bank that John Dillinger robbed in the movie. The workers are installing a panel with charges set to simulate bullet explosions.






    Note the life like machine gun holes. I also notices some red blood capsules on a building next door.

    The Public Enemies movie set was set in a "T" form. This photo is taken with the large billboard to my back, with the Soup kitchen and Homes barbershop to the left. To the right in the picture is the 8 story Bank and down that street is the Oshkosh Public Library.

    Cool Public Enemies





    This is the Exclusive Company. The movie transformed the building into the corner Walgreen Drug Store
    Down this street, and right across from the Library, the movie company set up a large "background screen" for editing

    Thumbs up Historic Oshkosh







    What's Oshkosh supposed to be?

    #Above, Masonic Temple building on Washington Avenue, Oshkosh, WI. The temple represented the American Bank and Trust Co. in Racine. Dillinger robbed the bank on Nov. 20, 1933.



    For filming purposes, parts of Oshkosh will become different locations in "Public Enemies." Universal Studios has yet to confirm all of these details.
    # North Main Street/Algoma Boulevard/Market Street will be Sioux Falls, S.D., where John Dillinger and Baby Face Nelson robbed the Security National Bank and Trust Co. on March 6, 1934.

    # The Experimental Aircraft Association's Pioneer Airport could be either Tucson, Ariz., or Midway Airport in Chicago. Dillinger was apprehended in Arizona and flown to Chicago in January 1934







    Below: Historic building that is not in the movie


    Oshkosh, not only famous for the former Oshkosh B'Gosh manufacturing, EAA, Oshkosh Truck, the home of two BMWMOA National Rallies and now a big movie.

    Downtown Oshkosh, like many Midwestern downtowns needed a boost and I hope this movie helps. I am hoping it is like the "Field of Dreams" build it and they will come. On my two motorcycle spring rides to Oshkosh , the second ride was after filming and many of the stage props were taken down.

    The Cast

    www.universalpictures.com





    # Johnny Depp as John Dillinger: An American bank robber during what is sometimes referred to as the public enemy era, between 1931 and 1935.
    # Christian Bale as Melvin Purvis: An FBI agent chosen by J. Edgar Hoover to lead a manhunt to catch Dillinger.
    # Marion Cotillard as Billie Frechette: Dillinger's torch singer girlfriend.
    # Channing Tatum as Pretty Boy Floyd[4]: An American bank robber and alleged killer.[4]
    # Giovanni Ribisi as Alvin Karpis: A noted criminal in the United States known for his alliance with the Barker gang in the 1930s. He was the last "Public Enemy" to be captured.[4]
    # Stephen Dorff as Homer Van Meter: A criminal and bank robber active in the early 20th century, most notably as a criminal associate of Dillinger and Baby Face Nelson.[4]
    # Billy Crudup as J. Edgar Hoover: The first Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) of the United States.
    # Jason Clarke as John "Red" Hamilton: A Canadian criminal and bank robber active in the early 20th century, most notably as a criminal associate of Dillinger.[4]
    # John Ortiz as Frank Nitti: Al Capone's right-hand man.[5]
    # David Wenham as Harry Pierpont: A member of Dillinger's crew.[6]
    # Stephen Graham as Baby Face Nelson[6]: He was a bank robber who acquired his moniker, Baby Face Nelson due to his youthful appearance and stature, a diminutive 5'3". After Dillinger's death in July 1934, Nelson became Public Enemy Number One.
    # Christian Stolte as Charles Makley: A known associate of Dillinger's and who broke him out of prison in 1933. By the end of that year, Makley ranked fourth on Illinois' list of "public enemies", behind Dillinger, Pierpont, and Hamilton.
    # Stephen Lang as Charles Winstead: He is the leader of the Texas Rangers who join the manhunt for Dillinger and his gang.
    # Shawn Hatosy as John Madala: An FBI agent who helped capture Ma Barker.
    # Branka Katic as Anna Sage: the infamous "Lady in Red" who was romantically involved with Dillinger at the time of his murder.
    # Emilie de Ravin as Anna Patzke: a bank teller who was taken hostage by Dillinger and later released.

    Bryan Burrough's four-and-a-half years of research, poring through tens of thousands of pages of FBI reports, communications, interviews and memos produced a 552-page narrative that traces the overlapping criminal careers of John Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson, the Barker-Karpis gang, Bonnie and Clyde and Machine Gun Kelly in 1933 and 1934. The book devotes just as much time to the transformation of the Federal Bureau of Investigation from a group of bumbling investigators to the modern, interstate crime-fighting force it is today.







    Release date July 1, 2009
    In the action-thriller Public Enemies filmmaker Michael Mann directs Johnny Depp, Christian Bale & Marion Cotillard in the story of the legendary Depression-era bank robber John Dillinger, a bank robber whose quick raids made him the Public Enemy number one target of J. Edgar HooverÔÇÖs FBI and its top agent, Melvin Purvis (Bale).


    It seemed like no jail could hold Dillinger or no one could arrest him. His charm and wild jailbreaks made him into a modern day Robin Hood to an American public who did not feel sorry for the banks that had pushed the country into the Depression.


    Hoover's FBI hit on the idea of using Dillinger capture as a way to make his Bureau of Investigation into the national police force that became the FBI.
