“American Experience” on PBS will have an episode devoted to Bonnie and Clyde next month. After watching a DVD screener, I invited director/writer John Maggio to join me and discuss:

  • Why did people line up by the thousands for Clyde’s funeral?
  • Notoriety would seem to be bad for business — did they chase fame?
  • Did they live a glamorous life?
  • Why were they killed instead of caught?
  • What’s the story behind the iconic photo of Bonnie leaning on a car, holding a pistol with a cigar in her mouth?
  • What did Bonnie and Clyde’s relatives think of the 1967 Faye Dunaway/Warren Beatty movie about them?

Maggio’s documentary will debut on PBS on January 19th.
