May 23rd, 1934. The small town of Gibsland, LA. It’s nine a.m. A well-known couple in love and crime are gunned down in their stolen, 1934 Ford Model 730 Deluxe Sedan. For twenty-one months these two, along with others in the Barrow Gang, had gone from state to state, robbing, stealing, and killing authorities and innocent people. The stuff of legends, their story has been depicted in songs, plays, books and at least eleven movies—some even produced by J Edgar Hoover himself. They were the loves of each others lives. Inseparable, these two would go down in a hail of bullets together. This is the story of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow.
