Dillinger, The Hidden Truth-RELOADED is an updated factual account about criminals of the nineteen twenties and thirties, and the heroic lawmen who tracked them down. John Dillinger became a "bigger than life" celebrity after his death in July of 1934.  His reputation would triumph and soar upward to become a giant in his trade; fourteen months later his career would skid to a tradic end. Dillinger participated in three gangs, escaped from two jails, raided three police departments, escaped several police and FBI traps, and helped mastermind the biggest jailbreak in history from the Indiana State Penitentiary at Michigan City.  It was a time of crime of corruption on both sides of the law. The line between the good guys and the bad guys was narrow if not indistinguishable.

 

Dillinger, The Hidden Truth is the first book to bring forth the early careers  of each Dillinger gang member and how they became outlaws.  Others investigated in this book are Pretty Boy Floyd, Bonnie and Clyde, the Barker - Karpis gang, the shocking years imprisoned in Alcatraz Penitentiary. Learn new facts on the Crown Point excape and the real wooden gun used by Dillinger. Find out the truth behind the Biograph assassination.

Find out more about how Hoover's  FBI created the greatest cover-up of all time and  how the Bureau rewrote official documents, falsifying legal facts. Read about how the Bureau gave away legal evidence as gifts, or was this just another lie? Also take a inside look at John Dillinger from those who knew him best.  Dillinger, The Hidden Truth contains the ONLY interview ever given by Beryl Ethel Hovious, John Dillinger's only wife. 

 

Read about the eyewitness accounts never documented in FBI files. No more lies, it's time to set the records straight once and for all and hear both sides of the story.This is the revised updated second edition...and contains many new stories and close to 200 rare photos. This new book is 8.5 X 11.0  and 438 pages.

JOHN DILLINGER HISTORICAL CRIME MUSEUM 

 (June 22, 1903 - July 22, 1934)

NOTE: The John Dillinger Historical Crime Museum is a Tribute, dedicated to the memory of the late Joe Pinkston. Pinkston was considered a "Top Notch"  investigator and authority of criminals like John Dillinger, as well as a rare memorabilia collector. He devoted his life to the preservation of historical artifacts and the investigation of criminals, interviewing more eye-witnesses and those involved, than any other historian on record. This is a feat that cannot be duplicated, because most of the survivors of the have since passed on.

Tony Stewart, "A great Crime Writer."

John Binder – author of The Chicago Outfit

"Tony Stewart's book 'Dillinger, The Hidden Truth' captures that shoot-em-up era to a 'T.' With the ever-growing library dealing with the '20s and '30s' gangster era, Stewart's book is another tasty dish on that splashy wine and blood splattered dinner table."
Tom Hollatz - Gangster Holidays--the Lore and Legend of the Bad Guys. (Hollatz was a good friend of author Tony Stewart. Hollatz died of a heart attack on July 8 in Boulder Junction, WI at age 64).

Tony Stewart's dedicated fascination with John Dillinger and other infamous gangsters from the 1920s and 1930s is finally revealed in "Dillinger, The Hidden Truth."
Robert Livesey - author of On the Rock.

Tony Stewart uncovers the "Hidden Truth" behind the Dillinger legend in this blazing ride through America's golden age of bank robbers.
Jim Adams - City Editor of the New Hampshire Sunday News.

When it comes to John Dillinger, author Tony Stewart strives to - tell it like it is! "Dillinger - The Hidden Truth," presents this dapper 1930's outlaw, as you've never really known him. This is a must read book!
Frank R. Ballinger - Bonnie & Clyde's Hideout Website.

"Finally we have a factual and engaging story of Dillinger's life, refreshingly devoid of the fantasy, bias and sentimentality of previous accounts."
Alston Purvis - Boston University (Son of Melvin Purvis
Chicago G-man for the FBI)

If you read only one book this year, make it " Dillinger, The Hidden Truth." Tony Stewart presents an exciting new look at the bank robber's career and those who attempted, by any means, to "Get Dillinger."
Bill Hanson - author of "Closely Guarded Secrets" and "Mystery Florida."

Read for the first time, Tony Stewart's well-researched book that uncovers the hidden truth in the annuals of the Gangster era that the FBI and J.Edgar Hoover didn't want the public too know.
Jeffrey Maycroft; Historical Consultant, Public Enemies Almanac.

J. Edgar Hoover ignored the Mafia to ruthlessly exterminate easier targets--celebrity bandits like Dillinger, Pretty Boy Floyd, and Bonnie and Clyde--check out Tony Stewart's Dillinger, the Hidden Truth. Moves with the fast pace of a stolen Ford V8 to the staccato bark of a Tommy gun!
Rick Mattix - co-author, Public Enemies, America's Criminal Past, 1919-1940 and Thompson, the American Legend: The First Submachine Gun.

In this new work John Dillinger is researched to the insight never before researched. This new insight and information that Mr. Stewart has written is a refreshing and new look at the famous John Dillinger. This is recommended reading, before the lights go out on the final chapter of John Dillinger. This is the final chapter.
Gordon Herigstad -author of Colt Thompson Serial Numbers.

NEW! Highly Recommended 

                                  

John Dillinger
The Life and Death of America's First Celebrity Criminal
by Dary Matera

 Comment by 7ony Stewart: "I have been presently communicating with author Dary Matera on the completion of his new book on John Dillinger. This is the book is nothing less than brilliant!  The book was originally written by the late Joe Pinkston (A known authority on John Dillinger and founder of The John Dillinger Historical Wax Museum) before his death. Matera has rewritten and condensed Joe's 1100 page manuscript to 416 pages.

Note: I added a blurb to Mr. Matera's book, but I was knocked off the cover by "True to Life" Wiseguy Mr. Henry Hill - The man that inspired the movie "Goodfellas" with Robert Deniro. I guess if I had to be "knocked off"...I'm glad it was Henry Hill who took me out. (Smile)

You can order Matera's amazing book right now online at www.Barnesandnoble.com.

PRESENTED BY TONY STEWART
Based on the book Dillinger, The Hidden Truth, this is an updated true story about the legendary John Dillinger, the most wanted outlaw in America during the year 1934. He was a man who fascinated the nation with his amazing but brief career as a top notch bankrobber in the midwest. Dillinger was the first man ever to be labeled "PUBLIC ENEMY NUMBER ONE" by the FBI.

Ladies and Gentlemen,
Please keep an open mind when viewing this site. Many see outlaws like John Dillinger as the worst imaginable criminal type in history, while others see him as a hero or folklore.

If you have any questions or comments please feel free to contact the author at the bottom of this page.

As the author of Dillinger, The Hidden Truth, I stick to the facts. The book is not based on prejudice against law enforcement agencies, but does focus on the injustice suffered on both sides of the law.
My aim is steady and my ambitions are to achieve accuracy, fidelity and factuality.


Look, I know it's not right to Judge people, but when it comes to J.Edgar Hoover and the FBI of the nineteen thirties, I feel justified to make an exception.

Learn why the FBI needed well known outlaws to boost their image as the nations top notch law enforcement agency. Outlaws like Dillinger didn't just become the FBI's most wanted badman. They were hand picked because they made the biggest headlines and attracted the most attention. Dillinger's career was nurtured by the FBI until he was ripe and ready for the kill. Dillinger's death would be the birth of the FBI.

"History is not about good or bad, right or wrong, it's about what happened."

WE CAN'T CHANGE THE PAST, BUT WE CAN BRING FORTH THE TRUTH

Dillinger, The Hidden Truth is dedicated to the lives lost on both sides of the law and the families who lost loved ones.

John Dillinger's reputation would triumph and soar upward in the nineteen thirties to become a giant in his trade. Fourteen short months later he would skid to a stop with a tragic end in the dirty streets of a dark Chicago alley. Dillinger's exploits would be admired by many as a outlaw and a folk hero during the great depression era.

The theme of the thirties was,"We couldn't take back what the banks took from us, but we could sure admire those who tried."


Folks literally made hero's out of bank robbers during the great depression.

Lights! Camera! Clinton?
Jupiter Entertainment uses local sites to film History Channel show

By BOB FOWLER, fowlerb@knews.com
November 3, 2006


CLINTON — Tommy gun blazing, "Baby Face Nelson" led other gangsters out of the bank they’d just robbed in Sioux Falls, S.D.
In real life, the notorious criminal from the 1930s is Maryville actor Jason Leith, and the bank is Dr. Joe Rainey’s dental office in downtown Clinton.

That scene is one of many being filmed in several East Tennessee towns by Jupiter Entertainment of Knoxville.

The end result, a two-hour documentary "Crime Wave,’’ will air next spring on The History Channel, says Alex Alexander, a freelance re-enactment producer for the filmmaking company.

The film crew is capturing the exploits of some of the biggest kingpins of crime during the prohibition era of the early 1930s: John Dillinger, George "Machine Gun’’ Kelly and Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, better known as Bonnie and Clyde.

The documentary also will explore the FBI’s role in combating that crime wave, Alexander said.

Filming began Oct. 26 and will wrap Nov. 10, she said.

Locations have included the old Morgan County Jail in Wartburg, downtown Oliver Springs and various locations in Clinton.

Filming is planned Sunday in downtown Knoxville, and other shots are scheduled in Harriman and Townsend.

"All of the small towns have been wonderful,’’ Alexander said. "We’ve worked closely with the police and sheriff’s departments.’’

Clinton Police Chief Rick Scarbrough said the filmmakers warned him in advance they’d be shooting machine gun blanks in Clinton Thursday afternoon.

Later that evening, they filmed Dillinger being gunned down behind Clinton’s historic Ritz Theater.

Alexander, in the business for 25 years, said she’s very familiar with East Tennessee locations, and she played a role in getting filmmakers to use Oliver Springs for scenes in the movie "October Sky.’’

"There’s a lot of film production in and around Knoxville ? lots,’’ says Jupiter Entertainment’s property master, Cheri Van Bynen.

Van Bynen says she’s the first to arrive on a location and the last to leave. "I make everything look the way it’s supposed to look,’’ she said.

To convert a dental office into a bank building, Van Bynen covered up signs, swept away leaves and removed a storm window so the mobsters could shoot through it.

Leith, 29, who landed his gig as Lester "Baby Face" Nelson Gillis through a Knoxville talent agency, said he’s been acting for years. He said he plays Burt Reynolds’ character’s son in the new movie "Broken Bridges.’’

Powell resident Phil Campbell portrays a member of Dillinger’s gang in the documentary, and he, too, has been acting for years, including a stint on the TV show "Hee Haw.’’

"This is a lot of fun,’’ Campbell said of his latest role. "You get to dress up and shoot guns.’’
