Bonnie Elizabeth Parker is based on the real life criminal with the same name. While the film is not exactly historically accurate – it romanticizes and exaggerates – it depicts a general version of the couples years together. What makes this story so great is Bonnie’s participation. To have a young couple rob banks, kill people and engage in acts shocking for the time, brings a new sense of excitement to the criminal lifestyle.

The Bonnie Parker the film portrays is the girl the media created based on photos found in the Joplin hideout. The photos depicted a  gun-toting, cigar smoking wild child. The real Bonnie was a writer – recording her thoughts in a diary – like taking photos and had top marks in high school. Everything changed when she was sixteen, Bonnie married a small time criminal and dropped out of high school. Though the marriage did not last, they were never divorced and she was wearing her ring when she was killed.
