Event Description
Outlaw folk heroes Clyde Barrow (Warren Beatty) and Bonnie Parker (Faye Dunaway) rob banks across the Depression-era Southwest, leaving a trail of violence and bloodshed in their wake. Hunted by police, Bonnie and Clyde continue in their reckless pursuit of love, fame, and ill-gotten money until their notoriety backfires, taking them beyond the point of return to a "normal" life. This film was released in 1967, has a running time of 111 minutes, and was selected to coordinate with the Depression-era theme of this year's Common Book: The Worst Hard Time by Timothy Egan.
