The FBI file for Doris Payne is said to be six feet long: The criminal history for the international jewel thief dates back to the 1950s. Payne is infamous for using her charm and a specialized slight of hand to put clerks at ease and walk out with precious jewels. Over her 60-year career, she is thought to have stolen $2 million in jewelry. Now 84, she’s been in and out of jail dozens of times.
The documentary The Life and Crimes of Doris Payne traces Payne’s journey from an impoverished childhood in West Virginia to a lavish life on the run around the world.
It’s three years after One Direction got back together, and Harry and
Louis have just come off a world tour. They’re enjoying a much more
relaxed schedule the second time around, allowing themselves to bask in
married life. Until, one day, Louis surprises Harry on vacation, and
there are some surprising consequences.

I have always been a sucker for heist movies. I don’t know why, but there is just something about cleverly orchestrated schemes to stick it to the “man” (whomever that might be) that fully capture my attention. I’m not condoning theft of any kind, but when I heard about the 80-something international jewel thief who also happens to be an African American woman…I had to know more. With enough digging I was able to find the documentary The Life and Crimes of Doris Payne.
Her recounts of schemes and escapes from authorities seemed to be pulled out of your favorite thriller; however they have all been confirmed by the FBI. She tells stories of how racial discrimination prompted her to steal her first piece of jewelry and helping her mother flee from an abusive husband led her to continue.
The filmmakers do an excellent job painting all sides of Doris…which causes you to empathize with her as she sits on trial for her latest heist, but time to time you also have to wonder if you’re being conned by this sweet little old lady.
“It’s not up to me to dictate how the officer comes at me. All I can do is give him a little bit more respect than he’s due.” (Doris Payne re police officers nagging her about her probation conditions as a convicted jewel thief in the documentary “The Life and Crimes of Doris Payne”)
I love her. Notice– *more* respect than he’s due. She’s such a subtle smartass.

Although a criminal, Doris Payne had the most fascinating life. I’m watching her documentary and she’s describing her relationships and her adventures in the most cinematic way. Conning people in the 50s, 60s, and 70s all over the world as a black American woman is the most amazing thing. Yet on tumblr, there’s only….ten posts about her.
#BlackLivesMatter - “Doris Payne - The Infamous Jewel Thief” - “Doris is a criminal,” - My best friend Erin’s states as I explain to her the story of Doris Payne! For over 50 years this woman stole jewelry to pay her bills! She’s created quite the reputation for being a “crook” and a “thief” although stealing is wrong - But, when you’re good at something stick to it and she has! She’s currently in Prison at 84 years old. Living FUCKING legend! Haha. #BlackHistoryMonth

That’s all I can come up with for now and they totally took down some of my favorite ones but if you message me I will give you some of my favorite titles and places to watch them. Not all of the above are good but I enjoyed them for the most part. I actually liked Jamesy Boy even though it was kind of corny and I didn’t expect to like it at all.
Who are some bad bitches that you look up to and admire?
Some? I’ve got a whole squad of bad ass women that I look up to and admire but they’re probably not the sort of bad bitches that you might think. This squad is comprised of women who I admire for various reasons, ranging from bravery to simply being ahead of their time. FYI, this is based on information I’ve picked up along the years from reading, schooling, and basic curiosity as a womanist. So in no particular order:
Ahosi/Mino (Dahomey Women)
Mary Elizabeth Bowser
Queen Manduhai the Wise
Queen Nzinga Mbande
The Amazonian Guards (their story breaks my heart to pieces 😔😢)
Muhumusa and Kaigirwa
Helen of Troy
Grace O'Malley aka Gráinne Mhaol
Triệu Thị Trinh
Female Mossad agents (not all though)
And last but certainly never least, my girl Doris Payne. And don’t nobody mention to me that she was a thief. I don’t want to hear it! I don’t want to mother fucking hear it!!! 😤😤😤

By the time he was on a taxi on his way from Doncaster Train Station to his hometown, Auckley, stress had repossessed his body. The air felt heavier, the sky looked darker and the familiar native accent made him want turn deaf. This place no longer felt like home. “Where to sir?” the taxi driver asked. “Auckley, please,” he replied, and now there was no going back.
Or the one where it’s 1993 and Louis is a successful broker who left home when he was 18, now thirteen years later he finds himself on a train back to his hometown under the most somber circumstances and on his way down he finds someone to hold on to.
Notorious jewelry thief ‘Diamond’ Doris Payne caught at Saks in Atlanta, stealing again. Professional, international jewelry thief Doris Payne was on the run and now she’s been caught. The gangster grandmama reportedly stole a $690 Christian Dior ring from Saks Fifth Avenue at Atlanta’s tony Phipps Plaza mall on Friday, October 23, 2015.
“I think these officers just thought it was a run of the mill shoplifting. They took the woman into custody and short time there after they get notice that another jurisdiction had a warrant for her and she was an international thief,” Sgt. Warren Pickard with the Atlanta Police Department wrote in a report.
“She put them in her pocket and politely walked out of the store.”
Payne was wanted in North Caroline for lifting a $33,000 diamond-studded ring from a Charlotte mall. She is currently in police custody at an Atlanta detention center.
The octogenarian has been at this since her 20s and is the star of the documentary “The Life and Crimes of Doris Payne,” where she gain notoriety for stealing at various locales around the country including Greece, Britain, Switzerland and Monte Carlo where she stole a 10 ½-carat diamond.
