Aka the Iron Grandma...

What a very exciting little crime programmer written by the great Horace Mac Coy and directed by the man who made Ellery Queen series for the big screen. This story is the first, as far as I know, that talks about the famous Ma Barker, the senior gang leader with her three sons. Roger Corman and his crew directors - including Steve Carver, Martin Scorcese, Lewis Teague, and I probably forget some of them, made many of those topics in the 70's, thirty years later. This Paramount productions film is very exciting, as were the other ones, directed by the likes of Louis King and Robert Florey, and starring Lloyd Nolan, J Caroll Naish or Anthony Quinn at his start.

The Grandma character is vivid, so well described.

Don't miss it.
