Very cool movie, very well done.
Stanley Runk
Turning tricks and finding a caring family, Polly falls in love with one of the customers, unaware that he is the notorious criminal, John Dillinger (Robert Conrad).

Too bad, I wanted to like this movie but I gave up after 30 minutes or so of silliness.

Format: DVD
okay, so the print was not perfect but from the other comments i was expecting it to be horrible. it was not that bad. people cannot expect all dvd releases of older cult titles to be given the VIP treatment since i'm sure there is not an enormous ammount of money to be made by the releaser. i'm just glad to have it on DVD. Ann Sothern and Cloris Leachman are a hoot, Don Most, pre-Happy Days, is great, and Linda Purl is drop dead gorgeous. This is a great buy if you like Bloody Mama and Big Bad Mama, the other two movies in the out of control outlaw women triumverate. Which reminds me, why the hell isn't Bloody Mama on DVD?

Just glad to see these Roger Corman classics getting the respect they deserve. CRAZY MAMA is one of the 'better' Corman films (thanks to good casting) that came out in the 70s and has never seen a good transfer to video. The movie itself is pretty good for Corman standards. Reminds me a lot of his GRAND THEFT AUTO and EAT MY DUST films, full of action without being R-rated violent and no nudity. Hard to believe Corman would release a film this tame in the 70s, most of his movies are exploitation flicks made for drive-ins. But finally Shout released this classic in anamorphic widescreen with commentary also! It is bare of really any other special features except the second feature THE LADY IN RED which is rated R (with nudity and violence)and anamorphic widescreen also. I am so glad that these old movies from the 70s are getting released from a good company that is doing justice to them. Even Corman's old Concorde label was putting his films out full frame and no special features. Just keep 'em coming Shout! Heard that GRAND THEFT AUTO/EAT MY DUST are getting released soon...can't wait! These movies are great buys if you can get 'em cheap enough.
So go back to yesteryear when they made cheap movies good!
Enjoy!!

Format: DVD
I just saw "Crazy Mama" yesterday on a theatre (actually, not a commercial theatre but the Lisbon Cinemateca).

The movie is a lot of fun, a good "road movie", and clearly Demme has talent and avoids many of the technical or stylistic "pitfalls" that are unfortunately common on 70's cinema (hand-held camera, zoom, etc).

Tha actors are well directed and the humour is kept on a restrained level, without over-the-top performances or situations that would be easy to do in a movie of this type.

What intrigues me is the format issue. The DVD is not widescreen, and a viewer said it was "pan-and-scan". But the fact is the copy I saw yesterday was not widescreen either, and visually it didn't look "pan-adn-scan"! And on IMDB, there is no mention to the picture's original format, but the DVD is referred to as "pan-and-scan".

Will anyone help me on this?

A joyous, unrelentless, kitchy celebration of 1950's Americana, Rock n Roll and the road.
This "Directors Cut" of Crazy Mama is a lot of fun because it also includes a feature length audio commentary by its director Jonathan Demme and the produscer Roger Corman.
Follow 3 generations of womwn and the men they pick up. It's general mayhem as their crime spree races from California to Arkansas.
CLASSIC 50's HITS SOUND TRACK - Set in 1950's rural America, with a great Rock n Roll sound track, it's a hillarious romp starring Cloris Leachman and Ann Sothern as the Crazy Mamas of the title.....who form a gang of regular, ordinary people who rob gas stations, super markets and eventually banks....the eldest member being an 82 year old grannie.
This movie is a lot of fun!

Format: DVD
Produced by Julie Corman, and directed by Jonathan Demme (The Silence of the Lambs), the low budget action/comedy Crazy Mama (1975) features a group of misfits travelling across the country in the late 1950's, engaging in a crime spree.

Cloris Leachman, an Academy award winner for The Last Picture Show, plays Melba Stokes, who along with her mother Sheba (Ann Sothern, the Maise films), are the leaders of a clan, who have decided to leave California, and return to their family home in Arkansas. Also along is Melba's pregnant daughter Cheryl (Linda Purl, Matlock), and her surfer boyfriend Shawn (Donny Most, Happy Days). While in Las Vegas, Melba gets hitched to Jim Bob (Stuart Whitman, Sands of the Kalahari), and Cheryl picks up motorcycle riding drifter Snake (Leachman's son, Bryan Englund). The trip back to Arkansas becomes an increasingly eventful adventure, as the group's criminal activities, draws the attention of law enforcement, culminating in a most violent crashing of a wedding.

Something of a road comedy with rural trash elements, Crazy Mama doesn't aim very high, as Melba turns to crime, in an attempt to find a better life for her family.
