Burbank, CA: Warner Brothers, 1967. Vintage oversize borderless double weight reference photograph of Faye Dunaway, Warren Beatty, and Michael J. Pollard from the 1967 film. With a German address stamp to the verso.

Perhaps the most significant film for the New Hollywood generation, with its mix of graphic violence, sex, and humor, and a glamourous take on disaffected youth. Its moral ambiguity and bloody ending divided audiences, leading critic Pauline Kael to come to its rescue: "in a sense, it is the absence of sadism... it is the violence without sadism... that throws the audience off balance at Bonnie and Clyde. The brutality that comes out of this innocence is far more shocking than the calculated brutalities of mean killers."

Nominated for eight Academy Awards, winning two for Best Cinematography and Best Supporting Actress for Estelle Parsons.

Shot on location in Texas and California.

11.75 x 9.25 inches. Very Good plus, with lightly bumped corners and faint soil to the verso.
