Bonnie and Clyde - (1967) Directed by Arthur Penn;
Starring Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway, Michael J. Pollard,
and Gene Hackman.
Watched Bonnie and Clyde yesterday night. I need a
Bonnie Parker, if Faye Dunaway's portrayal was any
bit close to the approximation of truth then its clear
why I'm single. I haven't found a Bonnie to rob banks
with. Thats all a life could be, even though it'll be a
short lived life. And if we can't rob banks, if the banks
have become too powerful, too protected then there is
something to take into account there, something about
how little power we truly have allowed ourselves to possess.
The Trail's End
poem by Bonnie Parker
You've heard the story of Jesse James
Of how he lived and died
If you're still in need
Of something to read
Here's the story of Bonnie and Clyde.
Now Bonnie and Clyde are the Barrow gang
I'm sure you all have read
How they rob and steal
And those who squeal
Are usually found dyin' or dead.
They call them cold-hearted killers
They say they are heartless and mean
But I say this with pride
That I once knew Clyde
When he was honest and upright and clean.
But the laws fooled around
Kept takin' him down
And lockin' him up in a cell
Till he said to me: "I'll never be free
So I'll meet a few of them in Hell."
If a policeman is killed in Dallas
And they have no clue to guide
If they can't find a fiend
They just wipe their slate clean
And hang it on Bonnie and Clyde
If they try to act like citizens
And rent them a nice little flat
About the third night
They're invited to fight
By a sub-guns' rat-a-tat-tat.
Some day, they'll go down together
They'll bury them side by side
To a few, it'll be grief
To the law, a relief
But it's death for Bonnie and Clyde.
