Infamous Chicago gangster John Dillinger, who was accused of robbing a number of banks and police stations in his brief career, was born on this day in 1903. A woman named Ana Cumpanas, a Romanian national who operated a brothel in Chicago, was friends with Polly Hamilton, Dillinger’s girlfriend, and when she discovered who he was, contacted the FBI and offered to set him up so that they could arrest him in exchange for the government dropping a deportation case against her. Dillinger, Hamilton and Cumpanas were confronted by the FBI outside the Biograph Theater after a movie, and Dillinger was murdered trying to escape. Despite the sobriquet "the woman in red" applied to Cumpanas, she was actually wearing orange that evening. "The Lady In Red" was Chris de Burgh’s second single from his 1986 album Into The Light, and reached #3 on the Hot 100 and #2 on the Adult Contemporary chart, and #1 in the UK, Ireland, and Canada. It was also rated the tenth most annoying song in a 2000 poll held by Dotmusic, and third most annoying song of the ’80’s by Rolling Stone magazine, along with several other dubious honors.
