Biography | show moreshow less
Emmett (1871-1937) was only 21 when the Dalton Gang attempted to rob two banks simultaneously in Coffeyville on October 5, 1892. He was the only survivor of "Death Alley", the street between the banks where the Daltons attempted to flee; four townspeople died on that fateful day. Emmett suffered chest and leg wounds and his right arm was nearly shattered from the barrage of bullets. Charged with the murder of two townspeople, he was found guilty and served 14 years of a life sentence before being pardoned by Kansas Governor Edward W. Hoch in 1907. He later moved to California where he wrote two books: Beyond the Law (1918) and When the Daltons Rode (1931). In the 1918 silent, Beyond the Law, based on his book, Emmett Dalton played three roles: himself and his brothers Frank and Bob. He consulted on many westerns. Three years after his death, When the Daltons Rode was released by MCA/Universal Pictures. It starred Randolph Scott, Brian Donlevy and Broderick Crawford; Frank Albertson played Emmett.
