Trivia

Bonnie Parker's two headed snake ring with green and red jewels was taken from the car by the sheriff after the shootout. It was kept in a box in his closet for 50 years until his family found it in 2013. They auctioned it for $20,000. The story was featured on an episode of "My Strange Inheritance". See more »

Goofs

One of the weapons Hamer purchases is a BAR (Browning Automatic Rifle). Though the weapons were available on the civilian market they were so prohibitively expensive that the likelihood of their being in a small town gun store is extremely slim. See more »

Quotes

Maney Gault: He's dead.
Frank Hamer: Or Cuthbert.
Maney Gault: Dead too. So's Alvarez. And if you go any further down the roster I'm gonna be gravely offended.

We all saw the movie Bonnie and Clyde (1967) directed by Arthur Penn. In France, we all heard the eponymous song (Brigitte Bardot and Serge Gainsbourg, 1968). The Highwaymen is a mirror version with two retired Rangers in pursuit of the infamous outlaws Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker, considered as Robin Hood and his beloved wife by the plebs. A dead or alive hunt, in the 30's. Knowing that dead is a priori more practical, we suspect from the outset, even if we do not know the story, that it will probably be the chosen solution. In many aspects, I perceive the atmosphere of Unforgiven (1992) directed by Clint Eastwood, with its predictable and ineluctable ending, with cars and heavy machine guns instead of horses and Remingtons.

The actors, the photography, the costumes, the cars, the atmosphere of the post-1929 Great Depression, the rhythm, the dialogues, the soundtrack, ... This is an excellent movie! As a synthesis: 8/9 of 10.
