Storyline

In 2012, Crundwell was arrested as the largest municipal fraud perpetrator in the nation's history, embezzling upwards of $50 million as the comptroller and treasurer of Dixon, a city in the heart of Illinois. Rita Crundwell became one of the nation's leading quarter horse breeders, traveled the world, and threw lavish parties, all while forcing staff cuts, police budget slashing, and leaving public infrastructure in disrepair. All the Queen's Horses aims to illuminate this landmark case and bring to light the blatant negligence of auditors and bankers the public relied on to keep their tax dollars safe.

Interesting subject but novice filmmaker
30 July 2018 | by heathrockslaSee all my reviews

I guess this is what happens when everyone thinks they can be a filmmaker. Really crap camera work at points....bad focus, jerky pan shots...reframing a shot mid answer (due to lack of the producers experience). Not sure why this PhD, cpa feels she needs to interject her vanity shots of herself and also her voice...especially just to have the interviewee repeat what she said unmiked. Like I said...it's an interesting story but it comes across as a vanity piece for the producer.
