About Book

Based on the true-life exploits of the 1930s Barrow gang, Bonnie & Clyde is not only one of the most entertaining films in Hollywood's history, but also one of the most influential. The 'cool violence' - combining stylized carnage with humour - which typifies the cinema of the 1990s, was first seen here. Inspired by the French nouvelle vague, Newman and Benton took on the characteristically American story of gangsters on the run and created a myth of enduring power, as well as transforming the members of the Barrow gang into creatures ennobled by their vulnerability.

This edition contains a wealth of supplementary material, including articles by producer/star Warren Beatty, director Arthur Penn and uncredited writer Robert Towne.
