Recently a four-hour, two-night Bonnie & Clyde miniseries was simulcast on three different networks starring Emile Hirsch and Holliday Grainger. Like the 1967 movie starring Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, the series is often light on the truth and heavy on "dramatic purposes."
Bonnie Elizabeth Parker (October 1, 1910 – May 23, 1934) and Clyde Chestnut Barrow (March 24, 1909 – May 23, 1934) were American outlaws who travelled across the U.S. during the "public enemy" era of the early 1930's.
