  • Notes

    • This episode was the subject of a lawsuit claiming copyright infringement filed against CBS by crime historian Jay Robert Nash, who had written four books presenting his theory that another man was killed in Dillinger's place in front of the Biograph Theater in Chicago in 1934. The court ruled in favor of CBS, affirming that the books' copyright material lay in Nash's presentation of the alleged historical events, not in the events themselves.
