Arthur Penn

I had the pleasure of interviewing the late Arthur Penn 3 years ago, just 40 years after the release of his ground-breaking film Bonnie and Clyde.

Bonnie and Clyde, originally aired August 3, 2007.

He was gracious and generous – as well as extremely interesting on the subject of how that film came to be, as well as what it meant to the culture.  Thousands of words have been written on the complexities, the violence, the Larger Meaning of the movie. Hearing Penn himself talk about it with the perspective of decades adds to the fascination.
