Gun Molls From Bonnie Parker To Virginia Hill
Gun Molls From Bonnie Parker To Virginia Hill

Listen
AIR DATE: March 18, 2014

The gangsters of the 1930s - John Dillinger, Clyde Barrow, Pretty Boy Floyd and Lucky Luciano - all have women associates who were generally labeled "gun molls." But unlike the popular image of the venal and vacuous woman hanging around the gangster, author Ellen Poulsen says the lives of these women were much more complicated. She will be lecturing at the Mob Museum this weekend and joins us to talk about the "gun molls" of the 1930s and 1940s.

GUESTS

Ellen Poulsen, author of "Don't Call Us Molls" and "The Case Against Lucky Luciano"
