    "Baby Face Nelson" was George Nelson, (AKA Lester Gillis).

    He was shot dead on 27 November 1934, perhaps enabling a date range to be given to this clip.

    Seen on one of the newspapers at 00:14 is mobster Dutch Schultz.

    The man pictured at 00:26 is FBI agent Herman Hollis, one of the men killed by Nelson.
