And the more true to life the movie is, the better. Here are some of the most notorious gangsters of all time, and the actors who portrayed them.

In 1911, UK civil servant Cornelius Neale Dalton said Kidd was a victim of “the schemings of unscrupulous politicians and lawyers”.

Ninety years later, author Richard Zacks wrote best-selling book The Pirate Hunter – The True Story Of Captain Kidd, in which he laid out the injustice.
