as part of Classics Night
Starlight Classics Night! Small-time crook Clyde Barrow (Warren Beatty) tries to steal a car and winds up with its owner's daughter, dissatisfied small-town girl Bonnie Parker (Faye Dunaway). Their crimes quickly spiral from petty theft to bank robbery, but tensions between the couple and the other members of their gang – hapless driver C.W. (Michael J. Pollard), Clyde's suave older brother Buck (Gene Hackman in his film debut), and Buck's flibbertigibbet wife, Blanche (Estelle Parsons) – could destroy them all. A paradigm-shifting classic of American cinema, BONNIE AND CLYDE (1967) packs a punch whose power continues to reverberate through thrillers decades later.
