Bonnie & Clyde Revisited

Director Neil Burger ("Limitless) continues developing a new big screen take on 1930's killers 'Bonnie Parker' and 'Clyde Barrow', based on the novel "Go Down Together: The True, Untold Story of Bonnie and Clyde", by author Jeff Guinn.

The bank-robbers killed at least nine police officers and several civilians.

A playful snapshot of the couple found at an abandoned hide-out, with pistol-toting Bonnie smoking a cigar, was subsequently distributed to the press, positioning the unmarried outlaws on the national media scene, launching their brief careers as 'fun-loving' criminal superstars.

Without Bonnie, the media outside Texas might have dismissed Clyde as a gun-toting punk, but a steady stream of photographs kept the media and the Depression-era public wanting more.
