Wheeling Film Society presents “Bonnie and Clyde” at Towngate Theatre
Wheeling Film Society presents Bonnie and Clyde Free Screening at 7 p.m. Friday, March 10, 2017. (Conversation about the film takes place at noon March 14 at the Ohio County Public Library.) Bonnie and Clyde is Arthur Penn’s masterpiece about Depression-era criminals who became folk heroes. They were Robin Hoods to the impoverished multitudes of the 1930's and revolutionaries to the politicized students of the 1960's. Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway are unforgettable as the leaders of a misfit gang of bank robbers. Does Bonnie and Clyde romanticize its anti-heroes, or do they get what they deserve? You decide.
