"Bonnie and Clyde" is the correct answer to the trivia question: "What movie did CBS-TV air opposite the Billie Jean King/Bobby Riggs 'Battle of the Sexes' tennis match?" (King won, BTW.) "The Ballad of Bonnie and Clyde" was also a 1967 Top 40 pop hit for Little Georgie Fame (on EPIC records and 8-track tapes!).
Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow lived fast and died young and violently. Their final moments are the stuff of legend, and for anyone doubting the "hail of lead" scenario, I can only say that a LONG time ago, I saw the actual car that Parker and Barrow were (in essence) executed. You would not believe the number of holes that machine sustained!
This is one bloody darn picture, and not just at the end. For example, the fate of one Barrow gang member (Clyde's older brother Buck) shouldn't happen to a dog, as the saying goes. Every principal cast member gives here a stand-out performance. The story of a free-wheeling bank robber couple is fast-moving and at times positively gruesome.
Also from director Arthur Penn:
THE LEFT HANDED GUN (1958) is another take on the Billy the Kid story. With Paul Newman as William Bonney. Adapted from the Gore Vidal play.
THE CHASE (1966) is a prison break story set in a small Southern town. Stars Marlon Brando, Jane Fonda and Robert Redford.
THE MISSOURI BREAKS (1976) is a fine western featuring Jack Nicholson, Marlon Brando and Randy Quaid.
