Suggested correction: There's no plastic bucket seen. If you're referring to the bucket cops are using at the crime, there's a shot of the bucket on its side and you can tell there's a metal bottom.


Factual error: There's a modern car in the background as soon as they arrive in Dallas. (00:32:50)

Factual error: When Maney and Frank are chasing Bonnie and Clyde in a dusty field, Maney (Woody Harrelson) fires his Colt Peacemaker revolver. His first shot is CG since the gun fires without him cocking the hammer. The Colt Peacemaker is a single action revolver, requiring the hammer to be cocked each time in order to fire the gun.


Factual error: The 1934 Ford of Bonny and Clyde's tires are late model car tires, too wide for that time period. (00:12:15)
