Trivia

At the time of the ambush there were $26,000 in reward pledges but when they tried to collect on this most of the pledges simply vanished. In the end, each of those involved received just $200. Hamer also kept most of the outlaws' guns for himself. See more »

Goofs

Bienville Parish Sheriff Henderson Jordan speaks with a distinctly Cajun accent. Due to deeply felt racial and religious prejudices of the time, Cajun mannerisms would have put him on the margins of Protestant North Louisiana society and disqualified him from becoming Sheriff. Unfortunately, the KKK would have enforced this. Sheriff Jordan, like most people born in North Louisiana, would have sounded much like the Texans. These accent differences still exist, thankfully without the discrimination. See more »

Quotes

Frank Hamer: How'd she fall in with an outlaw like Barrow?
Deputy Ted Hinton: Bored to tears. Along come Clyde in a fine car, by the time she found out the car was stolen, she was already in love.
Maney Gault: Ain't that romantic. I met my wife she was milking a prize Devon at the Oklahoma State Fair, I can't imagine anybody writing a ballad about that encounter.

A Damn Good Film
29 March 2019 | by roguegrafixSee all my reviews

A great film for history buffs -- although given a lot of poetic licence. I love the way they dehumanize Bonny and Clyde (B&C)--making them the enemy. As corny as Kevin Costner can be, he is good in this film as his his side-kick.

There is no evidence Costner said "Hands Up" at the end and the fact that Bonnie shot cops is heavily disputed but the coke bottle message is correct.

It was just great to be memorized by this film for a couple of hours. Enjoy.
