Bonnie and Clyde (1967)

86 EPISODE #63:  Bonnie and Clyde is a groundbreaking film that pushed the limits on sex and violence in cinema. Warren Beatty produced the film and also stars as Clyde Barrow, an ex-con who falls in love with a bored waitress played by Faye Dunaway. Together they launch a violent crime spree and become America’s most notorious criminals.

One thought to “Bonnie and Clyde (1967)”

  1. Bonnie and Clyde isn’t a favorite of mine, but I can appreciate it’s influence on American film and film in general. You should check out Bosley Crowther’s review of the film. It was so negative that he pretty much lost his job as film critic at The New York Times over it. Good job with the notes on the fashion. So many “period” films mis old and new styles, coming up with something completely different an original, as with Bonnie and Clyde. Apparently film goers won’t accept true costumes from the period (or so filmmakers think). It’s true in classics like Ben-Hur (1959), with the women’s costumes. Another all-around job you guys. Can’t wait until the next review!
