  • Highlights
    Clyde Barrow teams up with Raymond Hamilton to rob a store in Hillsboro. The store's owner, J. N. Bucher, was killed in the process. While Barrow was accused of the murder, he reportedly stayed outside in the car during the robbery. 
    W. D. Jones, a member of the Barrow Gang, talks about Barrow's crimes. Jones was convicted as an accessory to the murder of Tarrant County Deputy Malcolm Davis in October 1934. 
    Clyde meets Bonnie. Contrary to the film's narration, Bonnie Parker became involved with Barrow years before the 1932 crime spree. She was in the car with Jones when Barrow shot and killed Deputy Davis. 
    The deaths of highway patrolmen H. D. Murphy and Edward Bryant near Grapevine on April 1, 1934. An eyewitness account implicating Parker in the murders was later discredited. Barrow Gang member Henry Methvin later admitted that he fired the first shot, after which Barrow joined in. Parker was likely asleep in the car at the time of the encounter. Public outcry over the murders galvanized law enforcement into action, with Governor of Texas Ma Ferguson offering a $500 reward for each of the alleged killers.
