Machine Gun Molly is hardly one of the best films of all time to come out of Quebe.
No, I wouldn't consider this one of the best films to come out of Quebec ever...it just isn't so....
The film takes an awful lot of liberties that are certainly not based in fact at all.
I grew up in Montreal during those days......the city did have it's share of interesting characters, mafia, and other gangster elements including the Dubois brothers gang (French Mafia if you will), the West End Gang with Frank Dunie Ryan who was assassinated in 1984, the Catroni family and on it goes.
Machine Gun Molly, as stories go, was rather a side show but one that attracted the imagination of many of lesser means in Quebec....indeed she was a sort of folk hero....some would say, in the same manner as Richard Blass was.
