Bonnie and Clyde Scene 2

Scene 2

Scene 2

  • As the two walk down the street, Clyde tells Bonnie how he chopped off two of his own toes off to get out of doing hard work in prison.
  • She finds this—and him—endlessly fascinating.
  • As they drink their Cokes on the street, she presses him to prove that he really is a serious robber, so he shows her his gun.
  • In a clear suggestion of her sexual interest, she caresses the gun barrel lightly with her fingers. (Yowza.)
  • She challenges him to prove he can use his gun.
  • He robs a store, and the two then run away in a stolen car.
