Goofs

When Polly is recruiting Pops for one last bank job, the mannequin in the shop window behind them can be seen moving slightly. On his audio commentary, director Lewis Teague reveals that they didn't have an actual mannequin on set, so the make-up girl was asked to pose as one. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Polly Franklin: In the heart of little old New York, You'll find a thoroughfare. It's the part of little old New York That runs into Times Square. A crazy quilt that "Wall Street Jack" built, If you've got a little time to spare, I want to take you there. Come and meet those dancing feet, On the avenue I'm taking you to, Forty-Second Street.

Fairly decent look at the life of a Gun Moll
11 September 2002 | by See all my reviews

If they had called it "The life of a Gun Moll", nobody probably would have gone to see it. So they went with the Dillinger angle, but forget it this is Pamela Sue's film.

If you ever wondered how "good little" girls end up being window dressing for some of the most notorious gangsters that ever lived, this film gives a good look at her rebellion against her strict religious up bringing and her descent into crime and prostitution.

Pamela Sue is so cute, you have a hard time believing she is a hardened criminal, but she just about pulls it off.
