"A newsboy once said to his buddy
I wish old Clyde would get jumped
In these awful hard times
we'd make a few dimes
if five or six cops would get bumped"

The Destruction of History
New Bonnie and Clyde Slot Machine
Being a regular at the casinos, I knew that sooner or later a Bonnie and Clyde
slot machine would make the scene. Nice, but no cigar as far as I'm concerned.
It happened on September 5th 1933
100 YEARS AGO
THE ALL NEW "RED CROWN CAFE"
Located on the Ambassador Building's sixth floor. The space once served as the test kitchens for the former Farmland Industry.
Before that, it was the site of the old Red Crown Tavern & Cabins where the Bonnie and Clyde gang had their famous shoot-out.
There you can order up "Clyde's Breakfast Special" for $5.79 which consists of 2 eggs to order, choice of breakfast meats and toast.
Or try their "Sheriff's Pork Tenderloin Sandwich" for $5.99 which consists of freshly pounded pork tenderloin, hand-breaded and
served on a toasted bun. Horseradish sauce available. Perhaps you'd also care for some "Tommy Gun Fries" or "Bonnie's Salad".
THE OLD WESTPORT TOURIST COURT, JOPLIN, MISSOURI
This old 10 unit tourist court on North Main Street still stands today. It was possibly facing the wrecking ball, but is now being
rescued by Mr. John Tullis. He is planning a complete makeover, where he intends to operate it as a tourist court once again.
No, this is not a Bonnie and Clyde hideaway, but I thought it interesting, as this is possibly the last of it's kind in Joplin, Missouri.

Clyde with sisters
Clyde with Buck??????
Recent auction item goes for $467.99
This is from my father’s antique business in Hot Springs, Arkansas. He found it in a very old family
photo album. It is inscribed “Clyde Barrow back home” very lightly, in what appears to be in pencil.
He assumes that it is Clyde Barrow from the Bonnie and Clyde duo. Measures 3.5" x 4.5"
Perhaps "Clyde Barrow back home" was correct!

Who BEST portrays Bonnie Parker???
Romeo and Juliet vs Bonnie and Clyde. Epic Rap Battles of History
The closest I've seen to Bethany Harper's 1995 Bonnie Parker look, is seen in Hannah Hart's rendition.
Looking at this Bonnie and Clyde couple, leaves no doubt that Mr. Hughes' stars had inspired their look!
I really thought that this Rap video was cool. Warning: some rough language to the sensitive.

Smokey and the Bandit scene vs Bonnie and Clyde's death site on Hwy. 154
Bet you'll never watch the movie again, without looking twice at this road!
1977 movie scene was filmed on Mundy's Mill Road in Jonesboro, GA.
Mundy's Mill Road is a long stretch of road very similar to LA Hwy. 154.
B&W photo at ambush site in 1934. Below it is the 1977 movie scene on Mundy's Mill Road.
Exact spot today, seen in the movie still, above. Fitzgerald Road now intersects Mundy's Mill Road.
Sign seen on the left in current image, is the entranceway to the Fire Department that's there now.
New intersecting road is near the spot where Sally Field's character in the movie stood hitchhiking.
The youths encounter with Buford T. Justice happened here.

Bonnie and Clyde vs Clyde and Bonnie
Throughout his book "Go Down Together," author Jeff Guinn goes to great lengths to always
refer to the outlaw couple, as "Clyde and Bonnie." I realize that during the days of their criminal
run, they were most often referred to as 'Clyde and Bonnie." Now I on the other hand, prefer to call
them "Bonnie and Clyde" - each and every time. Why? Because it just clicks! It seems to roll off the
tongue in a more poetic way, like "Laurel and Hardy" as opposed to "Hardy and Laurel." or even
"Proctor and Gamble" as opposed to "Gamble and Proctor." "Romeo and Juliet" or Juliet and Romeo?"
You choose! As for me, I'll stick with good ol' "Bonnie and Clyde" any day.
Who is Nellie Gonzales? Bonnie's half-sister? The May 21, 1934 Identification Order #1227
lists Nellie Gonzales as Bonnie's half-sister, residing in Harwood, Texas (Gonzales County).
Many times the police reports and wanted flyers contained mis-information. Was there a
half-sister named Nellie Gonzales - living in Gonzales County? If there was a half-sister
at all, perhaps her actual name was confused with the county (Gonzales) she lived in.
