File Name: bonnie and clyde history .zip
This is a film that pulled off making ruthless killers attract sympathy, understanding and devotion from the audience, while at the same time turning their law-abiding chasers into real villains. Like all of the greatest films set somewhere in the past, it mostly deals with the present, capturing the contemporary social currents of ideas, emotions and longings with charm, humor and heart-breaking tragedy. Although at first criticized for his decision to produce his own film, Beatty would later be commended for it, setting up a practice of stars producing their own material that survived to this very day. Written by Robert Benton and David Newman, with some later inputs by the great Robert Towne, Bonnie and Clyde remains an exceptional and exceptionally influential piece of filmmaking that gave birth to one of the most fruitful and creative periods in Hollywood history. A monumentally important screenplay.

She preferred guys with an edge to them. Bad Boys, her mama called them. Then one night she met Clyde and knew her mama was right. If there was ever a bad boy, it was Clyde Chestnut Barrow. He had that look: those dark secretive eyes that never looked directly into yours. He had a pretty face and a smooth way of talking and she liked his silk shirt and the way he fit into i.
He had a pretty face and a smooth way of talking and she liked his silk shirt and the way he fit into it. He liked her too. They were destined to be star crossed lovers who blazed across the hot southwest in a time of drought and trouble. She wanted to be an actress and he wanted to rob banks. Their love for each other was without rhyme or reason, their attraction and bond unbreakable. They vowed the only thing that would ever seperate them was a bullet. A vow the Texas Rangers hoped to make come true.
Bonnie, the beautiful petite blond poet was Clyde's equal in every respect. She was his lover and partner, and was willing to die for her man. Clyde was tough and agile, a troubled soul of a man who loved only two things: bank robbing and Bonnie Parker.
Whether behind the wheel of a fast-moving Ford V-8, or the sultry bedroom of a Texas motel, their love and lives were unparalleled in the annals of history. Theirs is more than just a story of a fast and furious short and violent life--theirs is a story of unshakable love and devotion few ever experience.

And they may have been criminals, but they are also historical figures, and I found some of his scenes to be degrading and disrespectful. Oct 28, Laura rated it did not like it. Kept changing whose point of view it was from and didn't really seem like much of a love story so much as two confused people who just ended up together and then died together Feb 19, Jamie rated it it was ok.
The biggest thing I liked about this book was the dust jacket art. I appreciate winning this book in a Goodreads giveaway. Apr 11, Julie rated it liked it Recommends it for: fans of '30s gangsters.
Shelves: historical-fiction , from-library. I got this book out of the library on a whim, strolling around the New Books section. Part of what drew me in was the cover art - it's very nicely done. But, as we know I breezed through it in a little over a day. Brooks has a very fluid writing style. I could read chapter after chapter and not really find a good stopping place. The story is tumultuous, emotional, and at times violent but really not very graphic. While I enjoyed the book, it does bring I got this book out of the library on a whim, strolling around the New Books section.
Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow were real people. I'm not sure what gives Brooks the right to write a book about their love story, nor how accurate it is; the author cited no sources for his information or interpretation. There is a brief postscript which tells what happened to the major players, and that's it. Did Bonnie really keep a journal like she does in the book?
Were the letters written to her mother based on real letters? Does the book accurately follow the path the couple took through the South? There's no way to know, because Brooks basically just ignores the fact that someone might be wondering these things. Come on I'm a history major. May 18, Marisa rated it it was amazing Shelves: s , favorites , historical-fiction , biographical-fiction. I never once felt lost or confused with the switches, and what I got out of it was that each person was their own distinct, separate being with their own distinct, separate way of processing and interpreting the world.
Oct 31, Ryan Crim rated it really liked it. Bonnie and Clyde: American legends. We're all familiar with the classic story of the cold, fierce couple who traveled across the country, robbing stores to make ends meet. Just as one might judge a book by it's cover, we might judge them by their deeds. Underneath the crime Bonnie and Clyde were two people who were very much in love. We see this throughout the story when the going gets rough and leaving would be easier, they remain strong.
The story of this book is a true inspiration for all lov Bonnie and Clyde: American legends. The story of this book is a true inspiration for all lovers and the perspective from a warm perspective is eye opening. I'd recommend it to anyone who has an interest in history or anything.
This story has the potential to appeal to all readers. I like the author's writing style and will read more. I've always heard about Bonnie and Clyde but never knew details. Aug 19, Catt rated it it was ok Shelves: did-not-finish. Very beautifully written! Jul 12, Petra-X Off having adventures rated it really liked it Shelves: psycho-neurology-crime , reviewed. The book was good but Arthur Penn genius fleshed out Bill Brooks story and the acting brought the characters, a bit two-dimensional in the book - to life.

Access options available:. The Missouri Review Forge, , pp. Bill Brooks's latest novel is a lovely, lighthearted yet sinister piece of "what-if " fiction centering on the possibly most legendary outlaws of the twentieth century—Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow—whose four-year crime spree across the South and Midwest became the stuff of legends, a controversial hit movie and countless books. Unlike most other fictionalized treatments of Bonnie and Clyde's exploits, Brooks's novel focuses mostly on the infamous pair's romantic and sexual relationship rather than on the many robberies and murder sprees they committed, which in this novel serve merely as a backdrop for a tale of star-crossed lovers.
Possibly the most famous and most romanticized criminals in American history, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow were two young Texans whose early s crime spree forever imprinted them upon the national consciousness. Their names have become synonymous with an image of Depression-era chic, a world where women chomped cigars and brandished automatic rifles, men robbed banks and drove away in squealing automobiles, and life was lived fast because it would be so short. Of course, myth is rarely close to reality.
