  1. Bonnie and Clyde still holds up today. The flawless casting, the sharper moments in the script, and the fast-slow-fast pacing all comes together so well, offering a near-perfect gangster film, not a million miles away from the B-Movie roots of the genre.

  2. Interesting story. It has been said that Joseph H. Lewis 1950 crime noir Gun Crazy served as one of the many influences behind Bonnie and Clyde. Fascinating isn’t it? 🙂 Anyway, thanks for dropping by 🙂
