Bonnie and Clyde (Warner Bros-Seven Arts, 1967). Very Fine on Linen. Six Sheet (80.5" X 78"). Loosely based on the real-life exploits of 1930s bandits Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker, this is an important and influential film, one of the first pictures in the "anti-hero" genre that would become so popular in later years. Clyde (Warren Beatty) is a small-time bank robber when he meets Bonnie (Faye Dunaway) during a heist. The two soon set off on a spree of robbery and murder, a spree that eventually comes to a violent conclusion. Offered for the first time by Heritage, this large format poster only required restoration to address slight fold wear, as well as small chips and tears. The linen has been trimmed nearly up to the borders but not into the poster.
