On this week’s episode, we’re breaking down the casting of the 60s crime classic Bonnie and Clyde! Which Oscar-winning singer/songwriter did Warren Beatty want to play Clyde? Which former co-star of Beatty turned down Bonnie as she found working with him too difficult? And which French director was originally supposed to helm the film but insisted on shooting in – of all places – New Jersey in winter? Also – Bonnie, Clyde, and their hobbit getaway driver go on a crime spree across Middle Earth!
Bonnie and Clyde stars Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway, Gene Hackman, Michael J. Pollard, Estelle Parsons, Denver Pyle, Evans Evans, and Gene Wilder; directed by Arthur Penn
