How could one woman steal $53 million without anyone noticing? As city comptroller of Dixon, IL, Rita Crundwell stole $53 million of public funds across 20 years––making her the perpetrator of the largest case of municipal fraud in American history. She used the funds to build one of the nation’s leading quarter horse breeding empires, all while forcing staff cuts, police budget slashing, and neglect of public infrastructure.
ALL THE QUEEN’S HORSES investigates her crime, her lavish lifestyle and the small town of Dixon that she left in her wake. The movie is offered FREE this Thursday, April 26th, as part of Money Smart Week and will be shown at the Egyptian Theatre, 135 N. 2nd Street in downtown DeKalb.
