Bonnie Parker & Clyde Barrow were the most famous criminal couple in US history. During the height of the Great Depression, their gang evolved from petty thieves to nationally known bank robbers and murderers, joining the ranks of other Depression-era gangsters like John Dillinger, Pretty Boy Floyd and Baby Face Nelson: so-called ˜public enemies who captured the imagination of Americans laid low by the Depression. Newsreels in movie theatres across the country flashed images of a pixyish Bonnie, handgun on her hip, and handsome Clyde, with his custom suits and Browning automatic rifles, turning them into the underworlds dark prince and princess of crime. In reality, as this film reveals, Bonnie and Clyde grew up in the slums of West Dallas and had little in common with their glamorous media images. Their two-year crime spree ended when the couple was betrayed by a friend and shot dead at a police roadblock in Louisiana on 23 May 1934.
