THIS BANK WAS THE ONE THAT WAS USED IN THE MOVIE

The old Farmers and Merchants Bank building located on the northwest corner of
"The Square" in Pilot Point. Built circa 1890's. Shortly after the turn of the
century, the second floor was a medical-office suite. The building still stands
today and operates as an anitque store. Phyllis Tillery, Pilot Point Librarian


Some of the banks reputedly robbed by Barrow, were re-visited in the making of the movie.
The locations, were in Red Oak, Ponder, Venus & Pilot Point, Texas. The bank, shown
above, is located in the "Town Square" of Pilot Point, Texas. Smaller vintage photograph,
shows the bank as it appeared in the middle of the town square many years ago.

BONUS ADDITION

In the "BONUS" addition above, I show how a similar 1970 movie relates to the 1967 movie "Bonnie and Clyde."
That movie was Larry Buchanan's "A Bullet for Pretty Boy" starring Fabian Forte as "Pretty Boy" Floyd.




VENUS, TEXAS
Includes tills from Warner Bros. movie "Bonnie and Clyde"


In the beginning of the movie, Clyde downs a Coca~Cola and shows Bonnie his gun.
This scene was filmed on 2nd Street in Venus, Texas. Below is the building that
served as the backdrop for that particular scene. Now a park area (by tree) below
would have been the service station where the actors were standing at the time.






Clyde (Warren Beatty) crossed the street from the filling station to rob Ritt's Grocery Store.
The building used, is at the corner of Walnut Street and 2nd Street. Today it is a Church Annex.






The spot where they make their getaway, following the robbery. Grass shows where background building once stood.

"HARCOURT" BANK BUILDING 1961 FILMING

Seen in Route 66 "1800 Days To Justice" starring George Maharis and Martin Milner.

Stills from Route 66 taken at "Harcourt Junction"

In the Warner Bros. movie Bonnie and Clyde, you see Beatty and Dunaway leave what was suppose to be Arcadia, Lousiana
after spotting the laws. They then drive off into the ambush. That scene was filmed on South Main Street in Crandall, Texas.
where you can see the old Harcourt Bank building in the background, That building is currently home to Crandall Salon & Day Spa.
In the 1999 film "Boys Don't Cry" starring Hilary Swank, the same building is seen when the car full of youths drive into town.

TRUNK STREET (CRANDALL, TEXAS)



In the scene where Bonnie (Dunaway) is running through the cornfield because she's upset about
not seeing her momma, was filmed at the outer edge of West Trunk Street in Crandall, Texas






BURBANK LOCATIONS TOO!

The filming locations for Bonnie and Clyde were done throughout parts of Texas,
although some scenes were filmed at Midwest Street, "Anytown, U.S.A." in Burbank,
California, which is a Warner Bros. backlot "prop" city seen also in other movies.

MIDWEST STREET, ANYTOWN, U.S.A.





FROM REAL TO REEL

The movie location at the Joppa Preserve was a great choice for the Dexfield shootout scenes






Dallas Trinity Trails


Scene filmed at Little Lemmon Lake







WARNER BROS. AMBUSH LOCATION

The Albertson Ranch, better know as "Russell Ranch" in Triunfo, northwest of Los Angeles proved an ideal spot,
with the brush on one side and the clearing on the other side. The ambush scene had taken three days to film.


In 1925, all but 165 acres of the ranch were sold to William Randolph Hearst.
The Russell family then leased back their former property from Hearst. In 1943,
Fred Albertson purchased the Hearst property and 100 of the 165 acres of the
Russell's. In 1969, the American Hawaiian Land Company purchased all of the
property. The ranch provided the scenes for shows like Gunsmoke and Bonanza.







LIGON AND HAMM DRY GOODS & GROCERIES

Also in Red Oak the historic Ligon & Hamm building was used in a Barrow robbery scene.


Trivia

It was on the night of November 21, 1931 that Schuyler B. Marshall Jr., a former Dallas
County Sheriff was busted for burglarizing the Ligon & Hamm Hardware store in Red Oak.
