Description
Real-life bank robbers, twisted serial killers, and pulp novels have all helped shape the world of crime cinema. From Kiss Me Deadly, Bonnie & Clyde and Psycho, to The Godfather and L.A. Confidential, Max Decharne uncovers the little-known stories behind each of these classic films and more. Thanks to Hollywood, failed bank robbers Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow are forever fixed in popular imagination. Middle-aged Wisconsin serial killer Ed Gein is now forever embodied in Anthony Perkin s unforgettable portrayal of Norman Bates in Hitchcock s Psycho. The true-life origins of these films are now revealed in Max Decharne s revelatory volume the stories perhaps more fascinating than even their Hollywood representations.
