Bonnie and Clyde – Wanted and Hated

Bonnie and Clyde – Wanted and Hated: A blog about Bonnie Parker, Clyde Barrow and their gang

They were the most famous criminals of their day. A small-town beauty queen who longed for fame and a handsome ex-con who loved the thrill of stealing cars. Together they became a media sensation during the Great Depression. They were two young people who died violently and left an indelible mark on American history.

This blog is about Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, commonly known as “Bonnie & Clyde.” It tells of their brief but violent criminal careers when they robbed banks throughout rural America during the Great Depression, then met with a climax in Louisiana in 1934.

Bonnie Parker (1910 – 1934) and Clyde Barrow (1909 – 1934) were criminals. Their story was full of violence, crime and tragedy. They were not nice people. But the legend of Bonnie and Clyde has grown to mythical proportions and their place in history is forever cemented as one of the most famous couples in history. This blog is about Bonnie Parker, as she was my great-great aunt.

My interest in Bonnie Parker began when I was a child. My grandmother had a photo album with pictures of her family dating back to the 1800s. She would let me look through it and tell me stories about who these people were. When I got to the picture of Bonnie, she told me that Bonnie was her sister-in-law and that she died when she was only 24 years old. That seemed so young to die!

I asked my grandma if she knew what happened to Bonnie and Clyde but she didn’t really know anything about them except that they were gangsters who were killed by the police.

As an adult I became interested in learning more about our family history after I saw a photograph of my grandmother with her brothers and sisters on a farm in West Dallas, Texas where they grew up. The image brought back memories from

The reason I write this blog is because I am fascinated with Bonnie Parker. Even though so much time has passed, and she has been gone for over 80 years, people still remember her. She is like a legend.

I have been thinking about writing a book about her for quite some time now, but there are so many books about her and Clyde Barrow already. I thought that maybe if I can really get to know her through writing about her, then maybe in the end it will be worth it.

The reason I say that is because of an article that I wrote a couple of years ago regarding Bonnie Parker’s mother Emma Krause. At the time I thought that no one would be interested in reading it. But after doing some research on the internet, I found that there were quite a few people who were searching for information on Emma Krause. So perhaps my article helped them out somehow.

Another reason why this blog exists is because of a talk page that was created by someone else, who asked if anyone knew whether or not Bonnie Parker had children. Of course this was something that I wanted to know as well, but there were no answers on the talk page at all! So I decided to do some research on my own and see what I could

The name Bonnie and Clyde has been used in the title of at least 28 films, television episodes, and songs. The duo has been referenced in countless other works, such as books (both fiction and nonfiction), comics and video games.

Bonnie and Clyde is an American biographical crime film directed by Arthur Penn and starring Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway as the title characters Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker. The film features Michael J. Pollard, Gene Hackman, and Estelle Parsons, with Denver Pyle, Dub Taylor, Gene Wilder, Evans Evans, and Mabel Cavitt in supporting roles. The screenplay was written by David Newman and Robert Benton. Robert Towne and Beatty provided uncredited contributions to the script; Beatty also produced the film.

The film is considered a landmark film, due to its widely perceived influence on the then-new genre of “New Hollywood” filmmaking during the late 1960s to mid 1970s period of moviemaking (also known as New Wave). It brought a “splashy, sexy new look” to movies. Bonnie and Clyde is regarded as one of the first films of the New Hollywood era—the American film industry’s cinematic reemergence after the end of classical Hollywood
