    Description

    Bonnie & Clyde: Their Grisly Death in the Theaters. The crime spree of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow ended in a hail of bullets on May 23, 1934. Two months later, John Dillinger was gunned down outside the Biograph Theater in Chicago. 1934 was not a good year for criminals. This 6" x 12.25" handbill on newsprint advertises in rather florid language Bonnie & Clyde's final moments. Visitors to the local cinema could view "Actual Authentic Pictures" of the colorful pair prior to viewing the all-talking Western "Beyond the Rio Grande." Years later, their exploits would be immortalized in the film starring Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty. From the estate of Houston collector Brent Burg.
