The love story of Bonnie and Clyde, one of the most infamous outlaw pairs of the American Depression era, has become cemented in modern pop culture- but they were not the only couple in the Barrow Gang. Clyde’s older brother, Buck, and his wife, Blanche often traveled with their relatives and had a dynamic (and tragic) love story of their own. Join us as we delve into the Barrow romance that is barely mentioned in the folk ballads and Hollywood films.
