Her first film was in 1967 in Hurry Sundown, but that same year, she got the leading female role in Bonnie and Clyde (opposite Warren Beatty) which garnered her an Oscar nomination. Very few actresses started off their Hollywood careers with Oscar nominated roles. Faye Dunaway did just that. She embodied Bonnie Parker, and for years she was linked to the role and the character of Bonnie.
Personally I was enthralled with the movie, mainly due to Dunaway’s portrayal of this lost young woman, finding the love of her life and enjoying the havoc she was causing to make her lover happy. Dunaway didn’t win the Oscar that year, it would take another ten years before she walked away with the Oscar, but still in my mind her greatest role was that of Bonnie Parker in Bonnie & Clyde.
