Bonnie & Clyde Ride Again

According to the Los Angeles Times, "Warner Home Video will release a lavish repackaging of [Bonnie and Clyde] that comes with a 36-page hardcover photo book and the new documentary Revolution! The Making of Bonnie and Clyde," this Tuesday, March 25.

The Times article is an excellent look back at the making of the seminal true crime-based film that features interviews with the principals involved including Warner Beatty, director Arthur Penn, and Gene Hackman.

Warner Bros. is going all-out to promote these new re-releases. Upload a photo of yourself as a gangster and win a trip to the Primm Valley Casino to see the actual Bonnie and Clyde death car; and a Facebook page with four different trailers.
