1967 | 'Bonnie and Clyde'

The legendary bank robbers, played by Warren Beatty, center, and Faye Dunaway, second right, are gunned down in a blaze of slow-motion bullet fire in Arthur Penn's game-changing gangster film. "It was a time," Penn later said, "where it seemed to me that if we were going to depict violence, then we would be obliged to really depict it accurately -- the kind of terrible, frightening volume that one sees when one genuinely is confronted by violence."
