Big Bad Mama / Big Bad Mama II (Roger Corman's Cult Classics)
Angie Dickinson stars as a bank-robbing matriarch in this 1974 Roger Corman production, often described as a knock-off of Bonnie and Clyde. (As if that makes any difference regarding the worth of the film--which is pretty good.) Set in Great Depression-era Texas, the story finds Dickinson's desirable and poor character driven to crime, along with her two daughters (Susan Sennett, Robbie Lee), all of whom use sex to distract or drive men into culpability. The film, directed by Steve Carver, is pure Corman formula: fast-moving, violent, gritty, adorned with nudity, and yet solidly true to its own sense of high drama and texture. Veteran Angie Dickinson brings solid acting chops (and a great bod on display) to the enterprise--and speaking of Enterprise, William Shatner is quite memorable (as is Tom Skerritt) as one of the gentlemen who fall under the antiheroine's sway. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The ambiguous ending to Big Bad Mama 1 was quite clever. Did Roger Corman really appreciate that a sequel might be called for one day? It took a very long time to come and I applaud Angie Dickinson for still being game to undertake her part. But I suspect that she got a great deal of fun out of making these films - something that always rubs off on the ultimate vewer.
Thank you Angie!
the superb performance and presence of Angie Dickenson make this a must-see movie!
Angie was 43 when the movie was made, and the actress playing her "teenage" daughter Billy Jean was 29! I can't find an age for the actress playing Polly, even on IMDB.
