  1. Liliana Radwanski says:

    the reasons that Bonnie and Clyde is a classic are:
    Chemistry between Beatty and Dunaway. The story was based on true accounts.it was well acted.I only saw it a few times.twice all the way through.I’d love to see it on the big screen , the way it was meant to be seen.

  2. Mikary says:

    I’ve never seen “Bonnie and Clyde”, not even on the small screen. How great would it be to see FAYE DUNAWAY! WARREN BEATTY! on the big screen!

      To tell you the truth, I’ve never seen it either! But looking forward to it… Thanks so much for entering and Good Luck :)

  3. Chris Teel says:

    I am tempted to say the ensemble cast in which the director squeezed the absolute best out of each actor without any one of them overshadowing the other, or such memorable lines as “I certainly don’t intend to stand in the middle of Main Street looking at your dirty feet”, but what still blows me away after countless viewings is the overhead scene in the car just after Buck (Gene Hackman) is shot. No film of that era can convey the chaos and pain that scene does. It doesn’t just hold up, it set the bar.

  4. Paula Wyn says:

    It’s a love story!

  5. Ofelia Ryan says:

    It’s a classic because it depicts the time and the two are heroes in their own right.

      Hi Ofelia, Congratulations you just won a pair of tickets! I just sent you an email. If you don’t receive it, please let me know. Thanks so much for entering :)

  6. Brandy says:

    Not sure why it’s a classic since I have never seen it. I think it would nice to see it for the first time on the big screen. Thanks for the chance to win. : )

  7. Barry Libowitz says:

    I would like to see Bonnie and Clyde on the big screen because I am an aspiring director and want to truly experiance the beginning of “new Hollywood” in the way it was meant to be seen. The film is famous for its blood, violence, and proscimuity and i hope to see how those themes teuely show on a massive screen. I am a huge fan of gangster films and hope to make some one day but first want to study the classics.

  8. Amy Condit says:

    The film is so well-made. It starts out as if it were a comedy—some early comedic mishaps have the audience drop their guard, relax, and laugh. Then, when the first truly violent scene occurs, where Clyde kills a bank teller, the audience, as well as Clyde, is shocked by the violence. The violence increases in varying degrees until it caps off in a crescendo at the end—in the famous scene where Bonnie and Clyde are killed in slow motion. I have 2 books about the making of the movie, “Focus on Bonnie and Clyde” and “The Bonnie and Clyde Book” that were decades old when I first special ordered them at a used bookstore when I was in grad school! They tell a lot about the making of the film, have interviews with cast and crew, and provide a wealth of information for those interested in learning more about the film.
    The film supposedly ushered in a new era of cinematic violence. Some people and critics were appalled, others embraced it as cinematic genius. Pauline Kael, film critic of The New Yorker, first gave the film a bad review, then interestingly reversed her decision, when the public and other film critics continued to embrace it.

    It’s definitely worth watching—I have seen it over 30 times easily, and would love to see it on the big screen!

  9. Jason S says:

    There is no match out there for a movie that provides action, thrill, and romance and blends them together as well as Bonnie and Clyde. Not to mention some of the all time greatest actors bringing the film to life.

  10. Adam VanHandel says:

    It’s the movie that kick-started New Hollywood- that challenged censorship and brought about a new era where directors could make the movies they wanted to.

  11. Jeff Coyle says:

    It is a classic movie because of its excellent cast.

  12. Daniel says:

    Bonnie and Clyde and The Graduate are generally regarded as some of the first films to usher in the New Hollywood movement, breaking cinema traditions and taboos. This period crime story presents a social commentary on sex, violence, and the hypocrisy of 1960′s America. I won’t give away the ending, spoilers and all, but it’s shocking!
    Bonnie & Clyde, Dunaway & Beatty, Sex & Violence.
    I am looking forward to finally seeing this on the big screen.

    • Annmarie Gatti says:

      I think this is going to be terrific on the big screen! Thanks so much for entering and Good Luck :)

  13. Tom White says:

    Amazing performances from the whole case in this inaccurate but pacesetting anti-establishment film from Arthur Penn. Faye Dunaway is mezmerizing. Consistently re-watchable!

  14. Christopher Salazar says:

    What makes Bonnie and Clyde a classic is it’s all around superior film making. The narrative of the script is excellent, the acting is amazing, the costumes/sets are great, and it’s expertly directed. When every aspect of a film comes together the way Bonnie and Clyde does, it is destined to be a classic.

  15. Susan Born says:

    I think what makes this movie a classic is the chemistry between the actors. For Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway to be able to make us 2 characters, who were so despicable in real life, show great talent.

  16. Karen Cohn says:

    The casting was (is?) perfection and the cinematography wins hands down, capturing and creating a real 1930s ‘flavor’. Not to mention the ending scene, which, despite knowing what is going to happen, still makes my heart beat triple time. And a simple three word piece of dialogue says so much: “We rob banks.”

  17. Doreen Carlson says:

    Never seen the movie but having passed my own 50th mark last year, I am increasingly nostalgic for the classics. Also, a young Warren Beatty on the big screen? Yes please!

    • Annmarie Gatti says:

      Hi Doreen, I can’t seem to find your tweet. Could you please confirm that you tweeted, or let me know if you don’t have a twitter account. Thanks!

  18. Richard Leighton says:

    It would be great to see Faye Dunaway back on the big screen being respected again. She’s an incredible actress who got essentially dismissed for starring in “Mommie Dearest” since that file wasn’t well received, despite her giving an excellent performance.
    Warren Beatty suffered a similar, though less dramatic, backlash for “Dick Tracy” (completely unfair – it’s a fascinating film), let alone the debacle involving both of them at this year’s Oscar ceremony which was not their fault! I’d love to be in an audience with people who appreciate these two brilliant actors in a watershed film.

  19. Mark PAGAN says:

    Never seen it in full, just bits of clips, so I take its status on reputation. How better to see if it’s so than seeing it big?

  20. CaitlynD says:

    Bonnie and Clyde is a classic story of crime, violence, and a struggling emotional relationship. I think it perfectly captures the moments and feelings the two characters are feeling. Definitely a movie for the big screen.

  21. Jeanelle Kleveland says:

    I’ve never seen this movie. I’m going to check it out.
