Bonnie and Clyde – This was a watershed movie in American cinema. It and The Wild Bunch helped smash certain taboos of screen violence. The real Bonnie and Clyde were not actually this cool, so don’t go thinking this is 100% accurate. The late, great Dede Allen was the editor and the equally great Dean Tavoularis (The Godfather), was the art director (here’s some useless trivia: I was at college with Dean’s niece, whose dad, Alex Tavoularis, is also an art director/production designer). This is also the debut of Gene Wilder.
Little Big Man – Great book (read more Thomas Berger). Good movie. Awesome old age makeup from Dick Smith. He’s the best old age makeup guy in the biz.
