Bonnie, Clyde and the Invisi-Tie

Bonnie & Clyde

Once upon a time, Warren Beatty was a pretty sharp guy. And circa 1967’s Bonnie and Clyde, he was one of the sharpest men in California—pushing the French New Wave into Hollywood, head-faking studio heads for a percentage of the gross and walking away from the movie with a cool $27 million.

So we thought we’d take a look back at the classic bank robber flick, and all its glorious gangster suits, billowy shirtsleeves and invisi-ties.

Celluloid Classic

The other day in St. Moritz we caught a rare glimpse of one of the silver screen's true classics—a certain Faye Dunaway. It can sometimes be painful to look upon the faded beauty of screen sirens in later life, but Ms. Dunaway has still got a certain something, a lingering spark of the woman who wowed us in Chinatown et al.; no mean feat at age 67.

The actress was spotted at an art gala thrown by Cartier in the Swiss resort the other night, where Claudia Cardinale, who, alas, has not aged as well, also put in appearance. Meanwhile, Dunaway may be returning to the big screen soon; she's rumored to have a starring role in twisted director Todd Solondz's upcoming flick *Life During Wartime*.
