Bonnie & Tommy

August 30th, 2011 by in Artsy Sh*t, Movies

Robert Brandenburg replaces Clyde Barrow with Garbage Pail Kids gangster Tommy Gun for the upcoming Garbage Pail Kids trading card exhibit at Gallery 1988, presented by Topps and The Hundreds:

“The classic 1967 film Bonnie and Clyde is now so heavily identified with its leading actors that people often forget that others had auditioned for those roles. This studio still shot shows Tommy Gun during a screen test for the part of Clyde Barrow.  While it’s usually accepted that Warren Beatty took the role for himself because he was producing the movie; others suggest that he did so upon the insistence of Faye Dunaway (cast as Bonnie Parker), who objected to Tommy’s diminutive stature…he being just over 3 feet tall.”

The show opens Sept 2nd from 7 to 10pm.
