Bonnie & Clyde

bonnie___clyde.jpg

When Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow were laid to rest in May of 1934, thousands of people thronged to get a glimpse of the notorious outlaws. Bonnie and Clyde had robbed banks and businesses in a half-dozen states, and their gang killed at least four men. They may have been small time compared to other criminals of the day, but many Americans were transfixed by Bonnie and Clyde’s dramatic romance. Filmmaker John Maggio explores their story in a new PBS documentary and he joins us Monday.

On Tuesday, January 19, the documentary film Bonnie and Clyde premiers on the PBS series American Experience. In Utah, it airs at 8 p.m. on KUED 7. Check your local listings for screenings elsewhere. DETAILS

John Maggio produced, wrote, and directed the documentary film Bonnie and Clyde. He has also produced for American Experience documentaries about Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and Billy the Kid.
