The movie "Bonnie & Clyde"
is based on a true story about a criminal couple that robbed stores, banks, and gas stations in the United States during the Great Depression in the 1930s.
Many thought that Bonnie & Clyde and their gang were smart criminals who planned their robberies well and became rich from the money they stole. In fact, the robberies were very ill conceived and characterised by many mistakes. Often, the gang was forced to leave empty-handed, and many civilians and police officers were killed.
Still, because Bonnie & Clyde were the first known criminal couple, they rose to fame, and there have been many (often romanticised) interpretations of their love and their criminal career, both in film and music.
The most famous film is the 1967 version starring Faye Dunaway as Bonnie and Warren Beatty as Clyde.
The film is considered to be the breakthrough of the "New Hollywood" era, breaking many cinematic taboos with its openness to both sex and violence. The final scenes of the movie were considered the bloodiest and most graphic realism ever shot in film to that point.
The film was a romantic and comic version with new modern film-making techniques, but shifted quickly from comic to frightening with a lot of graphic violence.
Bonnie & Clyde were killed during an ambush on May 23, 1934, on a desolate road near their hideout outside Bienville Parish, Louisiana. Four Texas police officers and two from Louisiana killed them with a total of 130 shots.
