Big Bad Mama (1974)

Big Bad Mama was one of a series of cheap gangster films produced by Roger Corman during the early 1970s with the intent to capitalize on the success of films such as Bonnie and Clyde and The Godfather. Since it doesn't have the cast or plot to draw audiences, the filmmakers often used gratuitous violence or nudity to draw crowds. The 1974 film was directed by Steve Carver and stars Angie Dickinson as a mother in charge of a bank robbing gang and William Shatner as a gambler, is set between Texas and California during the later months of 1932 and spawned a 1987 sequel Big Bad Mama II.

The following weapons were used in the film Big Bad Mama:

Smith & Wesson Model 27

U.S. Prohibition Bureau agent William Bonney (Dick Miller) carries a large frame Smith & Wesson .357, likely an anachronistic Model 27, in a brown leather RHD shoulder holster. The appearance of a .357 Magnum revolver itself is anachronistic, as the round wasn't developed until 1934.

Thompson M1921AC

Oklahoma bank robber Fred Diller (Tom Skerritt) carries and fires a M1921AC Thompson fitted with a drum magazine during the Lubbock City Bank robbery. Wilma (Angie Dickinson) also uses the Thompson during later robberies of the race track, the California oil refinery payroll office, and the fancy party. U.S. Prohibition Bureau agent Dodds (Tom Signorelli) is handed one by his partner, agent Bonney (Dick Miller). Many California policemen fire Thompsons at the McClatchie house during the final gunfight. Wilma's daughters Billie Jean (Susan Sennett) and Polly (Robbie Lee) also get some time firing the Thompson.
