Fashion aside for a second, I ultimately came away from the movie eager to learn more about the actual Bonnie and Clyde. One of things I had never heard before, but that the movie seems quite keen on emphasizing, is the idea that Clyde "was never much a lover boy." In other words, the film suggests that Clyde had a low libido and/or an aversion towards intimacy with Bonnie. Was this true? I have to say I found it a little amusing that the notorious lover boy Warren Beatty had to play this role! I digress: can anyone suggest any good biographies that might help one learn more about the people behind the myths and the movie characters? Until watching the movie, I also had no idea that Bonnie Parker wrote poetry. I did a bit of research to see if this was fact or fiction and found a site which has posted her work.
Final thoughts: 1) Dunaway's outfits were chic in their own way, but nothing can top Parker's Depression era knitted getups; 2) I saw some sites online indicating a new Bonnie and Clyde movie starring Hilary Duff is being filmed (noooooo); 3) Dark City Dame has taken the BEST Bonnie Parker inspired fashion photos I've ever seen!! I did my own feeble attempt at a Bonnie look at New Year's for the murder mystery dinner. Close, but no cigar.
