Bonnie & Clyde. The only solution was to die

Where does romanticism fit when we talk about two unscrupulous individuals? That was certainly the question that led Serge Gainsbourg to sing with Brigitte Bardot a song in honor of Bonnie and Clyde, certainly the most famous bandit couple in the history of crime: «Chaque fois qu’un policeman se fait buter / Qu’un garage or qu’une banque se fait braquer / Pour la police, ne fait pas d’mystère / C’est signé Clyde Barrow, Bonnie Parker ».

If there was anything Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker had to give and sell, it was brazenness. In the midst of the Great Depression, which broke out in 1929 and continued until the beginning of World War II, they were bank robbers whose name sprang up almost naturally from anyone who started a conversation about crimes. Another thing that no one denied them was courage: there were many times that, surrounded by the police, they opened the way to freedom with machine gun fire and risked being slaughtered like rabid dogs. Once, outside a bank, nine police officers and more than a dozen civilians were killed in absolute cold blood. Whoever dared to face Bonnie and Clyde took it to tell, if he had the supreme luck to survive his fits of rage.

Bonnie Elizabeth Parker was born on October 1, 1910 in Rowena, Texas. Nothing would say that she would become the infamous woman she has become. Fragile of physique, given exclusively to the care of the mother due to the extremely premature death of the father, it was evident by her shiny red hair. An attentive student, she nurtured a taste for literature and dreamed of becoming a writer. The marriage to Roy Thornton was against his will. Although the union was never officially broken, they did not get along. Conflicting features separated us after three years. Roy was a stairwell scoundrel and soon went to see the sun rise squarely in a local prison on account of a few more robberies worthy of a hen-heap than of a real thief. Bonnie had no choice but to wind her shoes: she took a job at a bar and that’s when she met her life partner: Clyde Chestnut Barrow, known as Champion.
