Bonnie and Clyde

Bonnie and Clyde
Release Date: August 13, 1967
Director: Arthur Penn
Actors: Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway, Michael J. Pollard, Gene Hackman, Estelle Parsons, Denver Pyle, and Gene Wilder

     Killers? Check! Robbers? Check! Car Theft? Check! True Story? Check! This movie is based on the real story of Bonnie and Clyde. The movie was done in color, and was a bloody mess. You can see the very car that was shot up (in real life) at The Crime and Punishment Museum in Washington, DC. Although this movie is based on something terrible and not at all sexy, Warren Beatty is easy on the eyes.

     If you have not heard the story of the real Bonnie (Faye Dunaway) and Clyde (Warren Beatty), here is what the movie is about. It starts off with pictures of the real people involved in the crime. Then we see Bonnie in her own home, she looks outside and then BAM, she sees Clyde. Who is handsome and charming. After he tells her that he was in jail, shows her his gun and robs a bank just to show her he knows how to use his gun, the movie sets off in a wild.... Run. Chase. And everything you would see in a crime movie. There was more to the gang than Bonnie and Clyde. You will also see Clyde's brother Buck (Gene Hackman), and also a young boy (16 years old to be exact) by the name of C.W. Moss (Michael J. Pollard). The movie is insanely fast, and educational as well. They get into so much trouble and have the entire USA looking for them. Naturally, they killed not only civilians but police officers as well.
