Storyline

Lily Dallas is a highly intelligent ex-con who has a history of committing bank robberies. This time she and her husband George 'Blackie' Dallas, who is known for his deft use of a Tommy gun, kidnap a well known and very rich businessman Thomas B. Randall and demand $300,000 ransom. Mrs. Randall follows their instructions and doesn't contact the police until after she has paid the ransom so Ness puts out a rumor that all of the bills have been marked. Blackie however is beginning to chafe under Lily's orders, all the more so as she is having an affair with a member of her crew, Marty Stoke. With the ransom money now unmovable, they go back to robbing banks. Written by garykmcd

A Wild Episode Featuring A Female Crime Boss
24 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Norma Crane really chews up the scenery in this unusual story of a female boss criminal. She plays "Lily Dallas," a rough-edged, hot-tempered but very smart and tormented character who pushes around all the men and usually pulls off successful heists. She knows what she's doing, and the men respect that.

Also in the group of thieves-turned-kidnappers is her husband "Blackie" (George Parks) and a flirt "Marty" (Ed Nelson) and the sparks between those two and Lily provide a sub-plot that winds up having a dramatic ending.

This was an interesting story, with a few shocking parts in it.

Notes: Playing Lily's mother is June Vincent, whom film noir fans might recall as the co-star in the 1946 film, "Black Angel." In an uncredited role, we see Barbara Parkins of "Valley Of The Dolls/Peyton Place" fame.
