Continuity mistake: In the first shoot-out that involves the entire Barrow gang, Estelle Parsons becomes hysterical with a spatula and dish towel both in her left hand. The filming cuts away for one second and then she has the dish towel in her right hand and the spatula still in her left hand where it remains for the rest of the scene. This scene is a little more than one third of the way into the movie (VHS).

Continuity mistake: When Bonnie and Clyde meet C.W. for the first time at the gas station, there are cuts back and forth between a medium shot from the front left side of the car and a closer shot from C.W.'s perspective, standing at the front right side of the car. In one shot Bonnie's right hand is positioned under her jaw, and her right elbow in resting of the top of the passenger side door. In the other shot her right arm is stretched out straight and resting on the door. There are at least two cuts and at least two appearances of each shot.

Revealing mistake: When CW Moss throws the grenade beneath the armored police vehicle, the resulting explosion does not appear where the grenade landed.

Question: Where does Bonnie get all her clothes from? From what we see she goes off with Clyde wearing the yellow dress and doesn't have any bags or anything with her. Are we supposed to think she steals them?

Answer: Bonnie and Clyde were bank robbers, remember - it's quite reasonable that Bonnie would buy herself some clothes with the proceeds.
