I submit to you that the one thing indisputably better is when Angie Dickinson does it for you. It is a not perfect film. It might not, in fact, be good in the technical sense. Our titular Mama is, of course, the immortal Angle Dickinson, who goes by the significantly less badass actual name of Wilma McClatchie.
Plot[ edit ] In Texas in , after stopping her youngest daughter's wedding, Wilma McClatchie Dickinson takes over her late lover's bootlegging business, but gets caught while doing the delivery route with her two daughters. After handing over all her money and her ring to the sheriff, they are let go and she begins her crime spree. While Wilma is at a bank trying to cash a fake check, the bank is held up by Fred Diller Skerritt and his gang. In the melee, Wilma and her daughters, Polly Robbie Lee and Billie Jean Susan Sennett , grab some money bags from behind the counter and escape, but not before Diller gets in their automobile and leaves with them.
