That Other Bonnie.

Faye Dunaway

Dorothy Provine was one heck of a lethal lady in The Bonnie Parker Story (see a preceding post), and Holliday Grainger turned in her own terrific performance in the 2013 TV-film version. But however inaccurate, it’s the classic Arthur Penn-Warren Beatty 1967 film version most folks tend to remember, and I don’t suppose there’ll ever be a more poignant performance than Faye Dunaway’s fashion model anti-hero version of that deadly south Texas outlaw, and here she is in an onset shot with mirror, hairbrush, revolver and loot bag in hand.
