The Highwaymen

Recommended Posts

Just finished watching "The Highwaymen" starring Costner and Harrelson on Netflix. Well worth watching in my opinion.

 

As always, YMMV when it comes to opinions on entertainment.

Does anyone know how many 'hits' Bonnie and Clyde took.

 

Looking at some old historical pictures, it looks like their car was riddled with 100+ bullets.

How many hit B & C?

Watched it last night.  Good movie!  Loved the scene in the gun shop.  Only problem I had was understanding some of the dialogue.  Don't know if it was the tv speakers or my ears, but just couldn't pick up several lines by Kostner.  Otherwise, a real good movie.  Of course YMMV.

I watched it last night. Totally enjoyed it. Good acting, good script, period correct cars, homes, streets, uniforms, clothes, guns, etc.......But, I agree, Costner's hoarse, croaking whisper was hard to discern at times. YMMV

Quote

Researchers have said Bonnie and Clyde were shot more than fifty times each;[24] others claim closer to twenty-five wounds per corpse, or fifty total.[108] Officially, parish coroner Dr. J. L. Wade's 1934 report listed 17 separate entrance wounds on Barrow's body and 26 on Parker's,[109] including several headshots on each, and one that had snapped Barrow's spinal column. Undertaker C. F. "Boots" Bailey had difficulty embalming the bodies because of all the bullet holes.[110]

The April issue of True West magazine has articles on Hamer, Gault, Bonnie and Clyde, and making the movie.  Worth a look.

 

I dont watch anything without subtitles anymore, so I enjoyed the dialogue.

 

i guess my  Friday night post on the movie was a case of “premature evaluation “!  Glad to see I did not enjoy it alone!!

I think that there are several things going on all at the same time.  First is that it has been fashionable, especially in western period pieces, for the actors to talk in Mumble.  I guess it is supposed to give it a more 'authentic' feel.  Or something.  Second is that sound effects and music have become more important than dialog.  Third is that as we get older our hearing gets worse.

My stepson used to race in the desert and when we’d go up to cook for the race team and pit crew we’d stay at Whiskey Pete’s. I believe it’s the real car but there are plenty of people that don’t based on the comments I heard over the years.

And fourth, Kevin Costner and Clint Eastwood and Nick Nolte and a dozen other actors are feeling the effects of aging.
