Bonnie and Clyde follows the adventures of Clyde Barrow (Warren Beatty) and Bonnie Parker (Faye Dunaway). It's a romanticized retelling of the real-life outlaws that were the central members of the Barrow Gang. The couple meet during the Great Depression when Clyde tries to steal Bonnie's mother's car. She dumps her job as a waitress and joins the outlaw on his crime spree. They join forces with C.W. Moss (Michael J. Pollard), Clyde's brother Buck (Gene Hackman) and his wife, Blanche (Estelle Parsons). The two women take an instant dislike to one another, as the crew trades in their small-time heists for bank robberies with ever-increasing violence. They are relentlessly pursued by Texas Ranger Frank Hamer (Denver Pyle). Arthur Penn directs the 1967 drama that received the Academy Award for best actress in a supporting role and best cinematography. It was also nominated for eight other Academy Awards, including best actor, best actress and best picture.
