Description

“Just the right mix of 'What the Heck' whimsy and respectful, serious reporting to this incredible tale."
- Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun Times

“One of the best documentaries of 2017."- Quad City Times

Rita Crundwell stole more than $53 million of public funds across two decades in office as the City Comptroller and Treasurer for Dixon, Illinois, a small town of just 16,000. She used the funds to build one of the nation's leading quarter horse breeding empires, and threw lavish parties for community leaders at her home, all while the town endured cuts to public staff, emergency service budgets, and work on maintaining public infrastructure. In 2012 after a close colleague turned whistleblower finally uncovered her scheme and alerted the Mayor, the FBI arrested Crundwell as the largest municipal fraud perpetrator in American history.

All the Queens Horses is the riveting story of how a pillar of the community could so callously execute a scam of such magnitude. This film reveals the procedures behind how she did it and got away with it for so long, how she was caught, how the city is attempting to rebuild and recover, and how if it happened in Dixon, it could happen anywhere.
