Gangster Stories – Ladies With Guns

A i Capone, Bugsy Siegel, Machine Gun Kelly and Mickey Cohen, the legendary gangster of in American history have mainly one together: they’re men. With the equality it was also in gangster circles not so far. Apart, the female gender can be carried away, go and Rob a bank or shoot a few fellows over the pile, so that the budget again today not so easily. There were a few exceptions to the rule but at the time of prohibition and the great depression. They correspond to the idea of an attractive Femme Fatale with cigarette holder but not all, a getting to know they are still worth.

Ma Barker – A Real Gangster Mother

If Ma Barker “the most vicious, dangerous and resourceful criminal brain of the last decade” was really, as J. Edgar Hoover announced after her death, is disputed to this day.The idea of the female head of the family, that not only the laundry washes her sons, but plans also their raids, is always exciting.

Alias Arizona Donna Barker knew the 1873-born Ma Barker, that her sons as members of the famous Barker-Karpis gang for a series of violent bank robberies, kidnappings and murders were responsible, is beyond doubt. If she but actually played a major role in this criminal activity or Hoover and the FBI in retrospect called this myth in life, to be posted the killing of the old lady as a success, is questionable. Various contemporaries and members of the Barker-Karpis band described Ma Baker in hindsight as cumbersome, superstitious, and not even in the position, “breakfast to plan”. Therefore their use because limited, that she voluntarily offered a good camouflage their sons as “mother”.

Also to Ma of Barker’s death legends are told. When the FBI questioned her and her son Fred Barker in a house in Florida in 1935, it came to a gunfight, which lasted over four hours away, and the mother and son were killed. Allegedly took advantage of residents of this event even for a picnic spot. Also here are opinions however, if Ma Barker was really found with a machine gun in his hand, or if it was just her son, who had so long engaged the FBI. In any case, inspired the myth of the Hollywood gangster Mama to a series of cinematic adaptations, including “Ma Barker’s killer brood” and “Public Enemies”.

Virginia Hill – “Queen Of The Gangsters’ Molls ‘

The 1916 born Virginia Hill was a completely different type of “Gangster bride” as Ma Barker. With its sensuous curves and their skill is to wrap big boys around her finger, she quickly made a career in Chicago. It had been actually hills plan, to work on the stage, and perhaps to be discovered by the film. Instead, she was discovered at her work as a waitress and call girl by the elite of the mafia and gladly took advantage of this fact. It is said to her relationships with various influential mafiosi before Hill finally fixed Mistress by Benjamin Bugsy Siegel. Rumours after she even secretly married them in Las Vegas.But Siegel never divorced from his actual wife.

After the gangster finally 1947 was been shot into the home of Virginia Hill newspaper read by a contract killer, was mistress to knowing nothing of its criminal activities. Eye-witnesses who were present at one of the performances of the attractive Brunetten Court, reported them to use their charms knew even before the jury.After Hill was finally convicted of tax evasion, she fled to Europe and died from an overdose sleeping pills in Salzburg in 1966. In the classic film Bugsy, she is played by Annette Benning.

Marie Baker – “The Pretty Pants Bandit”

In contrast to Bugsy, seal or the Barker-Karpis gang Marie Baker was a small fish. By the way, where the attractive lady carried out their raids, she entered but in the history. Not only Baker was always with two guns, when she raided shops in the Bronx with her gang.

She ordered the employees and owners of businesses, respectively, after she had served in the Treasury, to take off her vintage pants and then made the dust. When the hijacked as far back had put on his pants, that he ventured onto the street, the bandits were already gone. Marie Baker, who in reality Rose Durant said, during a robbery checked her makeup by the way as they and is it could steal away one of the jeopardized has been caught.

Bonnie Parker – Legendary Outlaw

As the female half of Bonnie and Clyde, the 1910 born Bonnie Elizabeth Parker is a legend. After the two 1930 first met, they committed several hundred raids – along with some other criminals most of them on smaller businesses, but also on banks. While Clyde and his associates over the years several people killed, including police officers as well as civilians. Whether Bonnie even once pulled the trigger, is questionable.

No later than when a movie was found, had left the gang escape, which contained a photo of Bonnie Parker with cigar in mouth and a gun in his hand, the image was an image that so many contemporaries seemed romantic, before it discovered the cinema as sexy as cold-blooded gangster bride perfect -. Apart from that Bonnie Parker though was a chain smoker, but generally scorned cigars, the reality was probably gloomier.

In the last year before Bonnie and Clyde by a group of police officers have been shot, Bonnie was due to a car accident barely able to go, while Clyde had gunshot wounds all over his body with it. Also the public opinion that had glorified the gangster couple and their accomplices as outlaws, had turned against Bonnie and Clyde after a series of brutal murders and drastic – if also not always truthful accounts of eye-witnesses. At the end, a bounty on both was suspended on their dead bodies. The story of Bonnie and Clyde inspired since then numerous directors and screenwriters. “Bonnie and Clyde” in 1967 with Faye Dunaway in the female lead role is one of the most famous films.
