Killer Cinema Road Trips (Pass the Popcorn!)
In the latest issue of Mystery Scene magazine (issue no. 165), I take a look at 10 outlaw couples – compliments of Hollywood. Movies that mix it up with love, bullets and the open road owe an awful lot to a pair of real-life Depression-era hellraisers, Bonnie and Clyde. Ready to take a ride with Keechie and Bowie (1948’s “They Live by Night”), Annie and Bart (1949’s “Gun Crazy”) or, jumping ahead decades, Mickey and Mallory (of Oliver Stone’s amped-up 1994 entry, “Natural Born Killers”)? You’ll also discover some literary references to these film duos. The issue’s now on the newsstands.
