This low-budget 1974 B-movie is a copy of Bonnie and Clyde (1967) featuring Angie (Police Woman) Dickinson as Wilma McClatchie, the tough Texan single mother of two bank-robbing daughters, Billy Jean (Susan Sennett) and Polly (Robbie Lee), who are joined by accomplices William J Baxter (Star Trek‘s William Shatner) and Fred Diller (Tom Skerritt).
Heading for California to find their fortunes, the group rob a bank, mug a preacher, steal the take from a racetrack, kidnap an heiress, and kill a few people.
Every second scene seems to involve a robbery, a car chase, a gun fight, or someone having sex . . .
Produced by popular schlock-meister Roger Corman and shot in 20 days, this film is notorious for Ms Dickinson’s nudity and early sex scenes, which were edited before the film’s re-release.
Even though Wilma is shown mortally wounded at the film’s end, Angie Dickinson reprised her role as Wilma in a 1987 sequel, Big Bad Mama II.
