arthurpenn.jpgArthur Penn (I) (1922–2010)

Born: September 27, 1922 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA
Died: September 28, 2010 (age 88) in Manhattan, New York City, New York, USA

[on Bonnie and Clyde (1967)] I thought that if were going to show this (violence), we should SHOW it. We should show what it looks like when somebody gets shot. TV coverage of Vietnam was every bit, perhaps even more, bloody than what we were showing on film.
