Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway star in Arthur Penn's lauded crime drama based on the true story of outlaws Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow. In the 1930s, car thief Clyde (Beatty) teams up with Bonnie (Dunaway), the daughter of one of his victims, and together they become notorious bank robbers and Depression-era folk legends. They form a gang with Clyde's brother, Buck (Gene Hackman), Buck's wife, Blanche (Estelle Parsons), and gas station employee C.W. (Michael J. Pollard). When one of their robberies goes wrong, Clyde commits a murder and, with the police hot on their trail, the gangsters find themselves constantly on the run. The film received ten Oscar nominations, winning awards for Best Cinematography and Best Supporting Actress for Parsons.
One of the landmark films of the 1960s, Bonnie and Clyde changed the course of American cinema. Setting a milestone for screen violence that paved the way for Sam Peckinpah's The Wild Bunch, this exercise in mythologized biography should not be labelled as a bloodbath; as critic Pauline Kael wrote in her rave review, "it's the absence of sadism that throws the audience off balance". The film is more of a poetic ode to the Great Depression, starring the dream team of Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway as the titular antiheroes, who barrel across the South and Midwest robbing banks with Clyde's brother Buck (Gene Hackman), Buck's frantic wife Blanche (Estelle Parsons) and their faithful accomplice C W Moss (the inimitable Michael J. Pollard). Bonnie and Clyde is an unforgettable classic that has lost none of its power since the 1967 release. --Jeff ShannonSee all Product Description

The blu-ray picture and sound is fantastic, one of the best transfers I've seen for an old movie.
Extras are good too , although the factual documentary was overshadowed a little by the recent one put out on the BBC.
A few liberties taken with the truth but everything works!
PERSONAL: I saw BONNIE AND CLYDE when it first came out in 1967. I was just old enough to see "X" rated films (16). The film was a sensation then, and having watched tame violence for years, I walked out of the cinema stunned after the explosive finale. It can't possibly have the same impact today, but hopefully new viewers will still be impressed by some of the film's qualities.
BLU-RAY: I've watched this film improve in picture quality over the years, from video, to laserdisc, to DVD, to HD. Obviously the Blu-ray is an improvement over the SD version, details as always sharper with vibrant colours. Sound is now mono through each speaker rather than just the centre one, very clean, but it would have been nice to have a 5:1 mix for the HD version. Good documentaries and interesting to see most of the main cast interviewed who are still with us after 4 decades. Where was Gene Wilder though?
The acting from all concerned is top class, the film won all the top awards, nominations were flying in all directions. The film’s budget of $2.5 million was turned into a worldwide profit of $70 million.
I bought the ordinary DVD and I have to say that the quality of picture is poor – I wished I’d bought the Bluray version as this film is top notch.
Beatty & Dunaway have starred in many top films but I think it’s true to say that they both fell short of reaching the very top.
Like any film, this one takes a few liberties with the story lines but overall it contains most of the known facts. It's a first class watch and every bit as good, as I recall it from all those years ago.
The film is a fusion of incredible violence and jaunty slapstick, and smartly pauses for delicate moments to let us into the psyche of the main protagonists, we know they have hangups, and with that we know they are fallible human beings, and this sets us up a treat for the incredible jaw dropping finale, and the impact of this finale hits as hard now as it did back with the audience's of 1967.
The cast are incredible, Warren Beatty gives a truly brilliant performance as Clyde, he looks good and suave tooting those guns, but it's in the tender troubled scenes where he excels supreme. Faye Dunaway as Bonnie is the perfect foil for Beatty's layers, she nails every beat of this gangsters troubled moll. Gene Hackman, Michael J Pollard, and Estelle Parsons put the cherry on the icing to give depth and range to the rest of the Barrow gang, and these fine actors are clothed in gorgeous cinematography courtesy of Burnett Guffrey. To round out the plaudits I finish with love for director Arthur Penn because it's his vision that gives us something of a nostalgic movie that plays up and down with its subjects with cheeky aplomb, in fact it's just like the banjo music that features so prominently throughout this wonderful film.Read more ›
