“BONNIE AND CLYDE” BANDITS PHOTO SHOOT
FROM 1967 FOUND

Bonnie and Cycle

In 1967 the gangster movie “Bonnie and Clyde” influenced decades of movie-making that came after it. The film was nominated for 10 Oscars and took home 2. The Jelly Bean Bandits did a mock photo shoot with photographer Diane Carlson (who also stepped in these 2 photos) based on the characters from the movie. In the top photo (left to right), Joe Scalfari portrays Clyde Barrow, Diane Carlson as Bonnie Parker, Billy Donald as C.W. Moss, Mike Raab as Blanche and Jack Dougherty as Buck Barrow. Mike looks a bit like Frank Zappa on the cover of the Mothers of Invention 60s LP “We’re Only In It For The Money” but it was the only main character left so Mike had to settle for it.

In the next photo Buck (Jack) and Bonnie (Diane) capture and kidnap Sheriff Smoot (Fred Buck).

“BACK IN ’68” VIDEO FINALLY MAKES IT TO THE INTERNET

In 2001, when the Jelly Bean Bandits released “Time and Again,” their first studio effort in 33 years, one song was autobiographical. “Back in ’68” detailed what it was like when the Bandits first started and what it was like 30 years later in 1998 when they amazingly got back together. A music video was made for “Back in ’68” that until now, few people have seen. It features dozens of Bandits photographs from both eras.
