Back in Time Episode
The 1920’s and 30’s were a time of bathtub gin and jazz, but in Oklahoma, it was also a time of bootleggers, outlaws, and gangsters.
Charles “Pretty Boy” Floyd of Akins was a farm boy who fell in with the wrong people and turned to a life on the run robbing banks. George “Machine Gun” Kelly was transformed by an ambitious wife from a common thug into a kidnapper on J. Edgar Hoover’s “Public Enemies” list. Kate “Ma” Barker raised her sons in Tulsa, five bad boys that went from petty crime to a spree of robberies, kidnappings and murder.
OETA’s award winning documentary series Back in Time looks beyond the legends to examine why the state was so attractive to outlaws and how with the help of newspapers and radio, they captured the imagination of the people along Oklahoma’s Gangster Road.
