History Banter Podcast, Episode 23: Bonnie and Clyde (2013)

This week, Brad Folsom and I (Cameron Sinclair) review the most recent film portrayal of the legendary outlaws, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow. Bonnie and Clyde (2013) produced and aired by the History Channel, A&E, and Lifetime, covers the lives and crime spree of this Texas couple, played by Holliday Granger and Emile Hirsch, as well as their demise, led by legendary Texas Ranger Frank Hamer, played by William Hurt. We do a little comparison with the 1967 Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, Bonnie and Clyde, but mostly stick to the new film. How well does this film portray the historical figures of Bonnie and Clyde? Did Clyde really have visions of the future? Was Bonnie the driving force in their relationship? And, why did Clyde’s sister-in-law Blanch call her husband Daddy? All this and more…
