Bonnie Parker Goes to Prison

After a botched robbery attempt, Bonnie was arrested and sent to prison. While there, she wrote poetry using gangster lingo she picked up from pulp magazines and Hollywood. When she read the poems, her mother “began to see a strange and terrifying change in the mind of my child.”
“Bonnie & Clyde” premieres January 19 at 9/8c on PBS American Experience.
