The Ambush Film
there's the car
now what happened to the
film of the actual ambush?
T. Hunter McCann.
T. McCann, on exhibit
with the Death Car at the Primm Valley Resort there are many
artifacts on display with the car. There is the actual shirt
the Clyde was wearing when he was shot to death. Numerous News
paper articles of the death of Bonnie and Clyde. A necklace
that Clyde made for his younger sister while in prison and a
hand tooled belt that he made while in Jail. There are also
pictures of the posse, Bonnie and Clyde and other interesting
items from that era.
On a large
television right between the Death Car and another car that is
in the display they show a video that has many scenes from old
news reels which includes footage of the ambush.
I don't know if
the video is the same one that was shown with the car when it
was on display with the Hennies Brothers Midways. But in 1973
the Bonnie and Clyde Death Car was purchased by Peter Simon of
the Oasis Casino in Jean Nevada along with other items that
had been displayed with the car. John Robinson, Sideshow
