Love and Larceny...
4 March 2017 | by kitfox30See all my reviews

When I was a kid living at home, I saw this movie and TV that got me searching Crime stories so I can find out more about her, (She was a real person). Her story differed slightly from the movie, but it was very well done and well cast and often overlooked. There was a sequel made, but have not yet seen it, but would like to.
