It has been frequently said that crime does not pay. Criminals are later on punished for their evil deeds and are condemned for the rest of their lives.
However, this may not hold very true in the movies. Over the years, films about real-life criminals have had massive following and continue to make money at the tills. These real-life criminals, whether dead already or still alive, also earn notoriety as well as accidental fame when their lives are depicted in the big screen. In so doing, they are forever immortalized in the world of movies.
