NotesUnlikely story of real 30s gangsters who robbed banks, killed a lot of people, were betrayed and were dramatically killed themselves. This is one of my all time favourite films. When I originally saw it I stayed in my seat and sat through it again. It's Arthur Penn's best work and Warren Beatty as the producer deserves a lot of the credit, not to mention scriptwriters' Robert Benton and David Newman. Everyone in it has hardly bettered their performances here. The morality of the tale may appear a bit loose since it appears Bonnie and Clyde drifted into crime because of the depression and Clyde only of necessity shot the bank teller who jumped on the running board of their getaway car. But this film is more than a tale of bank robbers. In all the fuss and despite having seen it at least 8 times I until recently missed the fact that Clyde shot off two of his toes to avoid a work detail in prison. But he only has the slightest of limps and this is only the slightest of excuses to include this great film. I've even seen the car in which they were killed. It's not in a museum but a casino on the Nevada border.
