Some Arthur Penn Title Cards

Some Arthur Penn Title Cards

I’ve always loved the movie Bonnie & Clyde (1967). It’s had a huge impact on me.

So I decided to dig into the filmmaker one year and study all of his movies — most were pretty obscure & rated poorly. Bonnie & Clyde seemed to shine from his filmography like a lone beacon. I was convinced there must be some traces of Bonnie & Clyde in his other films, since the intensity of the movie seemed to be authorial derived and not an arbitrary Hollywood choice. Anyway, I did find those things but that’s for another conversation.

For now, here’s all of his title cards. Curious to see decades of work condensed like this.
