Last year was the silver anniversary of the Dillinger gang's capture in Tucson, but this year's Dillinger Days Festival has something the 75th lacked: a big Hollywood movie called "Public Enemies," released last summer.

Yep, Dillinger Days got Johnny Depped.

While "Public Enemies" had star power, it took a few liberties.

For a more accurate history, check out all that's going on at Hotel Congress on Saturday, including:

10 a.m. - Downtown walking tour with legal historian Andy Dowdle.

11 a.m. - Dillinger re-enactment, Scene One.

Noon - Carl Hanni spins hits of the 1930s. Also, happy hour at Maynards Drawing Room.

1 p.m. - Dillinger re-enactment, Scene Two.

1:30 p.m. - Lecture featuring local historian Ken Scoville.

2 p.m. - Lecture with downtown expert Jim Blees.

3 p.m. - Dillinger re-enactment, Scenes One and Two.

Finally, for all you Depp heads, the Fox Tucson Theatre will screen "Public Enemies" at 5:30 p.m. Tickets are $5.

Everything is else free. For more info, go to hotelcongress.com.
