Ma Barker does not want sissies for sons, and she wants some of the finer things in life. See Ma Barker teach her boys how to take what they want. See her killing rampage. See the ruthless Barker gang descend into hell.
Writer:F. Paul Hall (screenplay)
Stars:Lurene Tuttle, Tristram Coffin, Paul Dubov, Myrna Dell
You got to love a movie where the little old lady can handle a Thompson Sub-machine gun. Not a true life depiction of the Barkers but a lot of fun. Lurene Tuttle is great as Ma Barker, if I was a gangster during the depression, I'd want a mom just like her. You might recognize one of her sons, played by Don Grady (My Three Sons). Paul Dubov was slimy as Alvin Karpis, who likes to see things squeal when he kills them. The beautiful Myrna Dell plays Ma's competition, who wants to mussel in on the action. Look here you mugs, if you know whats good for you, you better watch this movie.★★★
