Abstract:
Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow were the most famous criminal couple in U.S. history. Newsreels in movie theaters across the country flashed images of a pixyish Bonnie and handsome Clyde, turning them into the underworld's dark prince and princess of crime. In reality, as this film reveals, Bonnie and Clyde grew up in the slums of West Dallas and had little in common with their glamorous media images.

Library Journal Review

Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow were among the most notorious of the Depression-era outlaws, and their exploits have become legendary. This film follows their story from their childhoods in the slums of West Dallas to their deaths at a police roadblock in Louisiana in May 1934. The romance between Parker and Barrow captured the American imagination and helped the two achieve notoriety. They were small-time criminals compared to other gangsters of the day, but the public was fascinated by their dramatic story of crime and illicit love. Interviews with surviving members of the Barrow and Parker families add an intimate touch. VERDICT This film has all of the production quality expected of a program in the "American Experience" series; recommended for general audiences and history buffs.-Rosemary Arneson, Univ. of Mary Washington Lib., -Fredericksburg, VA © Copyright 2016.
