Bonnie And Clyde Revisited

Hunted by lawmen in the early 1930's for many crimes including the murders of thirteen people, nine of which were law enforcement personnel and bank robberies during the great depression era - Bonnie and Clyde are today "folk law heroes". This was depicted in the 1967 movie Bonnie & Clyde starring Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway.

 A new movie is due out soon titled "The Story Of Bonnie And Clyde". We are still fascinated by this criminal couple even though they were ruthless criminal murderers. Their rein of terror was ended on May 23, 1934 in Bienville Parish, LA after lawmen set up an ambush and four Texas officers and two from Louisiana shot them when they appeared in an automobile in broad daylight.

 There currently is a museum located at 2419 Main St., Gibsland, LA called the "Bonnie And Clyde Ambush Museum" which is in the last cafe they dined in minutes before their death. It was called "Ma Canfield's Cafe" at that time. To read more about the museum go to:
