This week we’re talking about crime movies: those that were inspired by crimes or inspired their own crimes.
Ana tells the real life tale of Frank Abagnale Jr, a con artist and forger whose criminal career started at 15. Frank passed himself off as a teacher, pilot, doctor and lawyer all before he was 21. He later had his story retold in the 2002 Spielberg film ‘Catch Me If You Can’.
Jonatan is talking about Anthony Curcio who was inspired by ‘The Thomas Crown Affair’ to commit a robbery with a slew of decoys. With pepper spray, a tear-off costume and getaway by water Anthony almost pulled off the perfect crime… but it wasn’t meant to be.
We round off with a Banana Split cocktail. Stay to the end to hear what’s involved in this one. You can always reach out on Twitter, @crimebythebar, or by email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
