Ma Barker's Killer Brood (1960)/Gang Busters (1954)
Before "Big Bad Mama," there was this energetic gangster flick about the meanest Mama of them all. Follow Ma's rise to outlaw legend status, as she leads her sons in bank robberies and dispenses wisdom to John Dillinger and Baby Face Nelson. With Lurene Tuttle, Tris Coffin and Paul Dubov. Then, this earnest prison drama, based on the popular radio series, focuses on "Public Enemy No. 4" John Omar Pinson, telling in a documentary fashion the story of his repeated escapes from a mountain penitentiary. Myron Healey stars. 164 min. total. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono; bonus short "Gun Girls" (1956); theatrical trailers.
