'68 Bonnie & Clyde

with apologies to Beyonce and Jay-Z...accept no substitutes.

Here's one of the classics of French Pop - Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot's mighty 'Bonnie and Clyde', from Bardot's 1968 TV special. I lost count how many Gitanes Serge consumes in this video. I guess Serge was impressed by Arthur Penn's Nouvelle Vague influenced film of the same name (which at one point was actually to be directed by Francois Truffaut).

Bardot with a bob and a tommy gun. Perfect.
