BONNIE AND CLYDE MOVIE OOPS!!!
What you are not suppose to see...



1940 FORD FIRE TRUCK
blooper scene from the movie

In the first half hour of the movie, Bonnie, Clyde and CW Moss
knock over a bank. In the ensuing getaway, they nearly run a 1940
Ford fire truck off the road. However, the incident in the movie
takes place in the early 1930's. Photo (below) is the same model
truck as used in that scene.

EARLY 1930'S AIR CONDITIONER?

In 1931 H.H. Schultz and J.Q. Sherman invented an individual room air conditioner that sits on
a window ledge. The units were available for purchase a year later and were only enjoyed by the
wealthy. The large cooling systems had cost between $10,000 and $50,000. That's equivalent to
$120,000 to $600,000 today. In the 1930s, air conditioning made it's way to department stores,
rail cars, and offices. At that time, they were too big and costly to be used in the average family
home. By 1966, only about 10 percent of the residential homes in the U.S. had air conditioning.

The Joplin scenes takes place in the early 1930's, yet a couple of window air conditioners can be seen here.
In the scene where Blanche is frantically running down the sidewalk, you can also catch a mystery man running
quickly out of the white house. This is just as the getaway car swerves around the shooting cops. To catch this
in the movie scene, you have to look real hard. He wasn't really relevant to the action taking place. He was likely
the home owner, rushing out to the front lawn to see the actors playing cops and robbers. Strange little catch.

SIGN PRE-ARRANGED BULLET HOLE MARKING

Book "Special Effects: An Introduction to Movie Magic" By Ron Miller

Squibs




Actor Beatty shoots at the bank sign, then the sign is seen by audience. There's a patch that's seen where a squib
is placed to create the bullet hole, just below the "B" in the word "BANK." Then when Beatty hands the pistol to the
farmer, who's house had been repossessed by the evil bankers. The farmer a takes a turn at shooting at the sign,
after which you see the bullet blast a hole in the sign, just below the "B" (same spot) in the word "BANK".

Bullet hole will end up here

As a side note, the real Clyde would never have handed his weapon over to a stranger like he did here in the movie.
