"True Story" is only a title
25 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bonnie and Clyde's "True Story" has never been put on film, and there are dramatic variations in the accounts that have been published in book form.

While it is no easier to overlook 1990's hairstyles and dresses on 1930's characters in this movie than it was to overlook 1960's hairstyles on them in the 1967 movie "Bonnie & Clyde" (and I'll never understand WHY, it's not like one can't easily determine appropriate clothing and hairstyles for the 1930's, a decade well captured on film at the time!), the makers of this TV drama did at least get actors who were closer to the correct age. Bonnie and Clyde were both quite young, only in their early twenties when they met their death. These actors are, as usual, the wrong physical type, much too tall, as both Bonnie and Clyde were inordinately short, thin, small boned, little people.

The "truth" in the title is played fast and loose here. While they did include the fact that Bonnie was badly burned in a car accident, they were incorrect in depicting her complete recovery, she walked with a limp from that point on. The manner in which Buck and Blanche joined Bonnie and Clyde is inaccurately depicted in this film, and again the persons of W. D. Jones and Henry Methvin are combined into one character for no discernible reason (if your audience can't keep track of six characters, they can't keep track of five either). It would be far more interesting to depict the real story, W.D. apprehended and squealing like a stuck pig on Clyde, as Clyde had instructed him to do in the event of his capture.

Native Texan Betty Buckley is a pleasure to watch, as always, and most of the other actors do pretty well with the material they are given, but the viewer should know that this "true story" of Bonnie and Clyde is no more true to actual events than any of the previous poorly handled efforts.
