Facts about

The real Blanche Barrow sued Warner Brothers over the way she was depicted in the film. In reality, Barrow was the same age as Bonnie Parker, arguably better looking than her, she was not a preacher's daughter and had married Buck knowing full well that he was an escaped prisoner and twice divorced.
Roger Ebert had only been a film critic for six months when he saw this film and hailed it as the first masterpiece he had seen on the job.
Gene Hackman regretted his decision to film Buck's death scene in his vest. The scene was shot several times out of sequence; when they came to complete it, winter had set in and Hackman had to play it in his vest in near-freezing conditions.
