Geez, it would really hurt newspaper sales to mention some of the places HERE IN CHICAGO where there was filming, rather than all the places out of town...of course nobody here needs the tourist business...

Chicago "was a violent city"? What's with the past tense?

Dillinger never killed anybody. So why would the FBI shoot him down in cold blood? The establihment makes the rules and enforces them in their own way.

They're shooting here in Saint Paul where Dillinger spent some time. The city sure needs the business. However I'm not a fan of glorifying crooks.

The Untouchables tour wasn't really worth the price to me. With the exception of the Biograph, nearly every other site they take you to is a vacant lot or has some condo building on it. Their brochure is a tri-fold photo copy with some bad photos and a limited description of various Chicago gangsters. The tour guide is charming, though.
