Our favorite depression-era glamour outlaws are further romanticized in this double French treatement by storied singer-songwriter Serge Gainsbourg and bombshell of the universe Brigitte Bardot. Written by Gainsbourg, who would have been 83-years-old today, today's video lunch is the 1968 single "Bonnie and Clyde" based on a poem written by Bonnie Parker a few weeks before the criminal pair's dramatic ambush finale.
