Bonnie and Clyde -It's an attractive action packed movie. Yet after I saw 'Gun Crazy' 2 years ago I realized B&C was a rip-off right down to the beret worn by the female.

'Gun Crazy' check it out.

Actually, the beret was historically correct, having appeared in many snapshots of Bonnie Parker, it therefore couldn't really be a rip-off of Gun Crazy.

The greatest look in all 60s cinema, reprised in Chinatown, never seen again.

Anyone else think Ms. Dunaway's cheekbones and relative flatness of her face gives her an asian appearance?

I bet Arthur Penn didn't have the balls to yank out of one her hairs because it was out of place in the frame.
