YMMV: Bonnie and Clyde

  • Award Snub: Losing out on nearly all of the major Oscar categories, despite the recognition it received by (some) critics as an innovator for the cinematic landscape. Additionally, it failed to even earn a nomination for Best Film Editing.
  • Damsel Scrappy: The movie version of Blanche, at least in the estimation of her real-life counterpart—she was quoted as saying that "That movie made me look like a screaming horse's ass."
  • Freud Was Right: Clyde's impotence is represented by the toothpick in his mouth.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: With all due respect to Splendor In the Grass, the role of the bank robbing Clyde was Warren Beatty's big claim to fame. About three decades later he would take on the role of one of pop culture's most famous fictional lawmen in Dick Tracy.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Gene Wilder in his film debut as the male half of the couple that B&C capture.
  • Special Effect Failure: Most of the driving scenes feature Obvious Blue Screen.
