Editorial Reviews

Academy Award winner Cloris Leachman stars in Crazy Mama as Melba Stokes, a middle-aged woman who runs a California beauty parlor with her mother Sheba (Ann Sothern) and teenage daughter Cheryl (Linda Purl). When the shop is repossessed, the three ladies take a road trip from California to the family home in Arkansas that turns into a crime spree. Also starring Donny Most ( Happy Days), Jim Backus and Stuart Whitman. Directed by Academy Award winner Jonathan Demme ( The Silence Of The Lambs).

Pamela Sue Martin stars in The Lady In Red as the infamous Lady in Red Polly Franklin, whose red dress serves as an identifying beacon for the FBIs murder of public enemy #1, John Dillinger (Robert Conrad). From sweatshop to dime-a-dance hall, from prison to house of prostitution, Pollys journey brings her even closer to the gang-run crime world of the 30s: until that fateful day she meets and falls in love with John Dillinger. Also starring Academy Award winner Louise Fletcher ( One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest) and Christopher Lloyd ( Back To The Future)

Customer Reviews

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.

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!!

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!

DVD transfer: Prensented in color, the transfer is very good.

Cloris Leachman and Ann Sothern combine for a lot more laughs and fun than Roger Corman's earlier "bad woman" film, 'Big Bad Mama'. The release is rated PG without the nudity associated with the first film. I liked this film as it follows the same plot as other Corman films on this subject but adds a lot of humor. It is also based in the 1950's rather than the depression. A great road trip movie which does have some violence. Look for fine supporting roles from Stuart Whitman, Linda Purl and Danny Most.

The filnm owes much of its success to director, Jonathan Demme (Oscar winner for 'Silence of the Lambs'). Demme is just one of dozens of great filmakers and actors who got a chance to perfect their professions under Corman.

Recommended for: Roger Corman fans and anyone who would like a good laugh. For teens and up.

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.
