Ma Baker
18 August 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a fast paced film with Blanche Yurka (Ma Webster) as the head of a family of gangsters that involve themselves in robbery and kidnapping. Hardman J Carrol Naish (George Frost) is also part of the gang. FBI agents Ralph Bellamy (Scott) and Jack Carson (Ross) are on her tail, but Yurka is a formidable opponent. I think Carrol Naish will agree with that.

The film moves briskly between episodes only lulling for a 5 minute segment with the awful Billy Gilbert (Mr Reier) and his blasted cake. He gets a sequence which is probably only 5 minutes long but seems a lot longer as he shouts his way through his unfunny dialogue and unfunny over-the-top histrionics. And you shout back at him "Get off my television screen!" He almost single-handedly ruins the film. But, get past him and the film is good entertainment, with a cast of surprising pedigree.
