Flattop character jug produced in Korea by Applause of Woodland Hills, California, in 1990. Flattop Jones, Sr. is a fictional villain created by Chester Gould for the Dick Tracy comic strip. His nickname comes from his large head that is perfectly flat on the top. Gould revealed little about Flattop's personal life in the comic strip, but the background references that he did give the character share similarities to real-life Depression-era gangster Pretty Boy Floyd. For example, Flattop claims in the strip to be a freelance hitman from "Crookston Hills", a parody version of Floyd's hometown of Cookson Hills in Oklahoma. The comic strip also references Flattop's involvement in the "Kansas City Massacre," a 1933 incident in which Floyd was alleged to have been involved. In the 1990 film adaptation of the comic strip, he is played by William Forsythe as depicted in this jug. He was a henchman of the main villain, Alphonse "Big Boy" Caprice (Al Pacino) and is killed during a shootout with Tracy.
