Trivia

Michael J. Pollard didn't realize in eating scenes that you don't actually eat all the food because of the possibility of repeated takes. Sure enough, he soon regretted it in the scene in which the outlaws kidnap a couple and eat their lunch in the car. By the twelfth take, Pollard was feeling decidedly ill, having had to eat twelve whole hamburgers.


Quotes

Bonnie Parker: You're a smart fella. You sure do know a lot about automobiles, don't you?
C.W. Moss: Yes, I guess I do.
Bonnie Parker: Well, um, would you know what kind of car this is?
C.W. Moss: This is a 4-Cyllinder Ford Coupe.
Bonnie Parker: No.
C.W. Moss: Sure it is.
Bonnie Parker: No, this is a stolen 4-Cyllinder Ford Coupe.


Goofs

Before crossing the state line into Oklahoma, the Barrow gang robs a bank. When they get into the getaway car and start driving, the scene is cut away several times and each time, the car is pushed back from where it was before.


Alternate Versions

Several scenes (most of which can be read in the film's script) were shot but removed or altered for various reasons, either for content or to keep the running time under two hours. These scenes are, in chronological order:

  • The earliest versions had Clyde shooting and killing the butcher during their fight. This was toned down to Clyde just shooting the butcher, and finally just pistol whipping him. In real life, speculation still exists as to whether Clyde Barrow actually committed the crime this is based on; although his photo was picked out, the method in which it was executed doesn't fit his MO. In the final cut, there is a brief jump in the film during the fight, where it was spliced from the original, more graphic conclusion.
  • After picking up C.W., Clyde and Bonnie take him to a diner where they plan their next robbery.
  • After Clyde kills Doyle Johnson (the man on the running board), Bonnie talks with CW in the bathroom while Clyde cleans his guns and laments his actions. In the bathroom CW bathes and Bonnie attempts to seduce him, but changes her mind when CW proves to be less than romantic material. A still from this scene-- Bonnie wearing a slip and Clyde's hat-- can be seen on the DVD.
  • A longer scene of Buck and Blanche's approach to the motor lodge. Buck is singing Bible hymns and Blanche scolds him for bringing her to see Clyde.
  • A longer version of Bonnie's visit home; she sits in the car and her sister gives her a perm (a portion of this-- Bonnie on the running board getting her hair put up-- exists in the final film).
  • A very long sequence in which Bonnie and Clyde get drunk and come to terms with their impending death. They trash their room and rip out the mattress from their bed, turning it into a makeshift coffin. They then put on their best clothes and put makeup on each other so they can see what they will look like when they're dead. The scene concludes with Bonnie and Clyde dancing around CW by candlelight and chanting "The Hearse Song."
  • During the Platte City raid, C.W. uses a machine gun to attack the armored car instead of grenades.
  • The final shootout, in it's earliest form, was done entirely with still photos shown over sounds of machine gun fire and screams, and we never actually saw Bonnie or Clyde dead. The movie ended with the two farmers running towards the car while "Foggy Mountain Breakdown" Played in the background.
