Bonnie & Clyde (1967). Directed by Arthur Penn, this film is a romanticised yet violent version of the gangster pair whose crime spree lasted from 1931 until their death by ambush and shoot-out in 1934. Warren Beatty, who produced the film and also starred as Clyde, initially wanted the film to be shot in black and white. Instead, the film has a dusty, soft-hued colour palette that is not as desaturated as sepia-toned. Clothing, interiors and street scenes feature predominantly browns, beige, greys, black, and white tones with some occasional tinted hues including yellows, blues and soft greens. Dramatic shoot-up scenes slide into strong light-dark contrast. Nominated for 10 Academy Awards, the film won two.
