American Folk Figure. He was fatally shot by Miss Frankie Baker, a regular in the "red light" district of the city, on Targee Street in St. Louis, Missouri. This incident was written about in a song first called "Frankie & Albert" (for Al Britt), which was later changed to "Frankie & Johnny." A movie with the same name was made several years later.
