Format:DVD
Shelley Winters enjoys her most iconic movie role in Bloody Mama, Roger Corman's no holds barred biopic of `Ma' Barker, leader of the infamous Depression-era outlaw clan, and also the inspiration for the character of `Ma' Jarrett in Raoul Walsh's classic White Heat. Produced by Corman's usual studio, American International Pictures, in 1969, this film was made quite quickly and was obviously designed to cash in on the success of Bonnie and Clyde, which had been a runaway hit a short time before.
The film's rushed shooting schedule and low budget are visible on screen, but the film moves at quite a pace, and contains several striking performances that to help paper over the cracks in its production. Featuring as members of the Barker gang are Bruce Dern, Don Stroud (best known for playing villains in the likes of Coogan's Bluff and the James Bond movie Licence to Kill), and a very young Robert DeNiro, whilst western veteran Pat Hingle features as an unfortunate kidnap victim. Given the era in which it was made, the story it tells, and the fact that it is an exploitation movie through and through, it is no surprise that Bloody Mama is a somewhat salacious and distasteful film, and one that paints a much less romantic and attractive (but more realistic) portrait of the gang in question than was found in White Heat.
Far from being a classic, Bloody Mama will nonetheless appeal to those who enjoy bloody exploitation movies, and also to Robert DeNiro fans who want to catch him in one of his earliest roles. For those who may be seeking a far more polished and appealing film telling a similar story, AIP's 1973 version of Dillinger, starring Warren Oates, is infinitely superior.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hard to find De Niro 14 Mar 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Robert De Niro's first real major film role and one of a few that are hard to find. He made the most of the opprtunity playing the drug addicted son of a violent bank-robbing brood based on the Ma Barker, US gangster family. Typical Roger Corman film well done on a very low budget. Shelley Winters is the star and will always be remembered for holding up a bank, holding a tommy gun and chewing on a cigar. If you like gangster films, rather than the Mafia style films, then this is well worth a watch

4.0 out of 5 stars Bloody Mama recent re-release 7 July 2011
Format:DVD
Enjoyed this good re-release of the Bloody Mama movie by famed director Roger Corman. Pretty decent partly accurate biopic of depression-era yeggs the Barker Gang, under the figurehead of Kate 'Ma' Barker which is an intriguing slice of cult gangster cinema. Plenty of violent confrontations and the like.

Bought this for a cheap price and it arrived in perfect sealed condition. I would recommend the seller.

5.0 out of 5 stars FOURTEEN OR FIGHT 3 Oct 2005
By bernie TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:VHS Tape
Long before "never trust anyone over thirty" a final solution was proposed in this classic movie.
"Max Frost" (Christopher Jones) has figured out the fundamental flaw in the U.S. Government. "AGE", yep those old fogies are too stuck in their ways to run a government of the people. So with a little correction this can be amended. Be sure to see the unique solution for adjusting the government and helping people to retire a tad early.
Now the real question that "Max" must face is what is old? Be sure to listen to ""The Shape of Things to Come." And look for Bill Mummy of "Lost in Space"

3.0 out of 5 stars Shelly Winters is "Bloody Mama" 8 May 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Decent explotation movie, especially notable for an early performance by Robert De Niro. Don Stroud, Bruce Dern and Pat Hingle give strong performances. Shelly Winters is memorable as the title character.
The case against this disc is technical. The sound quality is quite poor; this does detract from the overall enjoyment of the film. Also, there is no subtitle option. That was of greater annoyance that one might suspect.
Overall-worthy explotation classic. They really don't make movies like this any more...

5.0 out of 5 stars Grrr . . . it's freezing 22 Jun 2011
By Clem
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Despite mixed reviews I enjoyed this film. Well, I did until three quarters of the way through when the wretched dvd began to freeze; slowly at first but increasing in frequency and duration. Eventually it stopped altogether and returned to the beginning. I tried tackling the last bit of the film by going through the Scene Selection route but fared little better. Ultimately Bloody Mama ground to a halt and whisked me back to the start. Very frustrating and irritating.

I'll have a word with the vendor.
