Moth to a Flame

John Herbert Dillinger was born this day in 1902... he was shot to death on July 22, 1934 outside Chicago's Biograph Theater shortly after seeing his favorite actress (and ours!) Myrna Loy in Manhattan Melodrama

this isn't my favorite Loy film...as its title suggests, it is quite melodramatic. Gable is playful but the hilarious William Powell is far too serious for my liking. I prefer him as silly as a billygoat...
