Ripped straight from the headlines of the Jazz Age, "The Bobbed-Haired Bandit" is a tale of flappers and fast cars, of sex and morality. It is the story of a poor, 19-year-old laundress from Brooklyn who robbed a string of New York grocery stores with a "baby automatic," a fur coat, and a fashionable bobbed hairdo.
