About Bloody Mama

Movie legend Roger Corman made his TFH debut with this commentary for his 1970 fantasia on the Depression-era Barker crime family. AIP wanted him to shoot it on the Warner Bros. backlot, but he convinced them to shoot on Arkansas locations, which made all the difference. A no-holds-barred Shelley Winters is the definitive Ma Barker.
