Synopsis

Based on a true 1980s story of high-living, charismatic Dodson, the owner of a posh Los Angeles furniture store who robbed a bank to impress his new girlfriend. In the 1980s, Eddie Dodson owned a high-end boutique furniture store on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles. He lived the Hollywood lifestyle, partying and hanging out with celebrity friends when he fell in love and took the biggest risk of his life to impress his new girlfriend - he robbed a bank. The thrill of the initial heist was so intoxicating that Dodson robbed more than 72 banks over a period of a few months in the Los Angeles area before the FBI finally nailed him. Highly charismatic and handsome, Dodson charmed his bank teller victims into emptying their cash drawers and earned the nickname "The Gentleman Bandit."
