THIS BANK WAS THE ONE THAT WAS USED IN THE MOVIE

PILOT POINT, TEXAS
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.




WAXAHACHIE, TEXAS
On West Main Street in Waxahachie, Texas is the house where Bonnie (Dunaway) peered out her momma's window.
"Hey boy! What you doin' with my mama's car"?



Lots of renovations since 1966. Red dot shows the window where Faye Dunaway stood

BONUS ADDITION
CRANDALL, TEXAS FILMING

In the "BONUS" addition above, I show how South Main Street in Crandall, Texas relates
to, not only the 1967 movie "Bonnie and Clyde," but also to several other movies.





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.







RED OAK, TEXAS

Building below on Waller Street in Red Oak, was used as a bank.




Movies often alter the surroundings. White building above, was fitted with an awning and sign and clock was removed.

The Hideout Recommends

Hervé Attia's Channel

Although not Bonnie and Clyde related, this is an excellent place
for visiting popular filming locations through the talents of Hervé Attia.
