Boxcar Bertha Reviews

Depression-era crime story with Hershey taking to the road after her father dies in an airplane crash. She meets railroad-union organizer Carradine, and the two take up train robbing. Carradine ends up crucified on the side of a boxcar. Lots of violence, typical of the Corman exploitation mill, but the film still shows the budding talent of Scorsese in his use of moving-camera and period detail.
