You cant catch Clyde.

So I watched Bonnie and Clyde for the first time last night. The first original one with Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway. Based on a true story, I wouldnt say I condone what they got upto but you have to admit that they went down in history and its kind of beautiful. The way they did what they wanted, when they wanted. All they needed was each other - and a bank full of money, roaming around America going wherever the mood took them. I really enjoyed this 60's movie, it gets a bit silly around the middle with all the killing etc, but hey ho, its all good. The thing I really enjoyed and the reason I actually watched it was, apart from Warren Beatty's beauty, Faye's outfits.

She definatley embodies sex and glamour in this film, something not seen before this movie came out. Bonnie and Clyde was one of the first films of the new hollywood era, popular with the younger generation of this time, Fayes outfits and all over styling would have been very influential for the female audiences. A remake of the film is due to be released this year, Hilary Duff was due to play Bonnie but has dropped out sadly.
