When Frank Hamer looks around Bonnie and Clyde's Florida bungalow the first page of 'The True Story of Bonnie and Clyde by Bonnie Parker' is in the typewriter. There are two different size fonts on the page, which was not possible with a single typewriter of that era. See more »

In the second half of this TV adaptation, we see more of Clyde's older brother Lane Garrison (as Marvin "Buck" Barrow) and his wife Sarah Hyland (as Blanche). Unhappy the Depression-era duo has become as popular as "Garbo and Gable," thickly-accented lawman William Hurt (as Frank Hamer) endeavors to catch Bonnie and Clyde. While unwelcome as a story element, Clyde's "second sight" segments are highlights. Also noteworthy is a brief scene shot as a "hand-colored" postcard. Director Bruce Beresford and his crew artfully handle flying bullets, feathers and snowflakes. This successful TV adaptation was telecast over two evenings, 8 and 9 December 2103, on no less than three US networks - A&E, Lifetime and The History Channel. Airing it on the latter station should have come with a larger than usual disclaimer. It plays fast and loose with the facts. Almost depicted as a feminist heroine, Bonnie Parker more or less rules the roost.
