Bonnie and Clyde guns auctioned for $210,000
Two guns believed seized from gangsters Bonnie and Clyde in 1933 after a deadly Missouri shootout with police sold for a combined $210,000 at an auction on Saturday in Kansas City to an unnamed online bidder. It is believed that both guns were left behind when the couple had a shootout with police on April 13, 1933, in Joplin. Police raided an apartment where the couple was hiding out, but they escaped. Bonnie and Clyde were killed in a police ambush in May 1934 in Louisiana. Their reputation was cemented in American pop folklore by Arthur Penn’s 1967 film Bonnie and Clyde. It won Academy Awards for best supporting actress and best cinematography, and was notable at the time for the bloodiness of its final death scene.
