Fifty Years of ‘Bonnie and Clyde’

I haven’t cared about the Oscars since 1992’s Silence of the Lambs sweep. Like, I presume, 99 percent of Takimag readers, I won’t be tuning in on Feb. 26, when one of the broadcast’s “highlights,” we’re informed, will be the choice of Best Picture presenters: Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway.

See, this year marks the 50th anniversary of the movie that made them stars and altered the course of American cinema, and culture: Bonnie and Clyde.
