Bonnie and Clyde was the product of actor-producer Warren Beatty's plan to establish his own material guided in Hollywood. This was aided by Arthur Penn's ability to apply his vision on the whole. Penn, Beatty, and the creative team were all astonished at how this film could be attributed on its own merits since a studio was not able to understand it nor recognize how the film generation would be able to support it. The most significant result of Bonnie and Clyde was that it was the first shot in the movie revolution that marked the start of “New Hollywood.” It is however important to note that this film and The Left Handed Gun had several implicit ramifications, and that the syntax that Penn employed was more easily grasped in 1967 than it had been ten years earlier, and audience identification proved to be a crucial factor.
