| Satisfying Crime Picture
Queen of the Mob is a fast-paced crime drama. It is set at Christmastime, so I suppose it could be watched at that time of year, although it would be an unusual kind of movie to screen then. Blanche Yurka is quite good as Ma Webster, a character based on real-life criminal Ma Barker. She is alternately tough and frail, depending on who she is trying to manipulate at the time. The film is action-packed and shows how the group cleverly pulled off their big heists and then laid low to avoid being caught. Of course, since this film was made after the code was reinstated which required that criminals be punished and not glorified, things don't end so neatly.
