At the end of the opening credits, two title cards appear. The first contains a black-and-white photograph of Faye Dunaway as "Bonnie Parker," next to the following written statement: "Bonnie Parker was born in Rowena, Texas, 1910 and then moved to West Dallas. In 1931 she worked in a cafe before beginning her career in crime." The second title card displays a photograph of Warren Beatty as "Clyde Barrow," next to the following statement: "Clyde Barrow, was born to a family of sharecroppers. As a young man he became a small-time thief and robbed a gas station. He served two years for armed robbery and was released on good behavior in 1931." The action of the story then begins.
Location scenes were filmed in Texas. In one scene, a sequence from Gold Diggers of 1933 (see below) is shown in a movie theater.
