One key early film of the New Hollywood, Bonnie and Clyde (Arthur Penn,
1967), is based on the lives of real people and yet their story is heavily modified.
Why? Using secondary sources, describe how a wide variety of influences (e.g.
the failing Production Code, the French New Wave, the intentions of the
screenwriters, the concerns of the director, the participation of Warren Beatty,
etc.) resulted in the transformation of the source material AND evaluate the
resulting film’s meaning. Did all these changes result in a heavily compromised
film or does it still have some degree of integrity? Scholarly sources required: 3
Please see below the instructions from my professor:
You should use frame captures (or screen shots) as illustrations whenever you offer a detailed
analysis of a scene or shot.
You are required to quote directly from SCHOLARLY sources in your essay (so make sure you
know what constitutes a scholarly source), and the course textbook does not count towards this number. Be sure to give citations for all ideas and quotations from secondary sources, including our textbook.
Your essay will primarily be graded on the basis of the depth of insight of your thesis, the care
with which you present and analyze evidence, the overall structure and clarity of your argument, and the formal qualities of your paper (e.g. formatting, citations). However, spelling, grammar, and punctuation do count, and papers that fall significantly below the grammatical standard expected in a 200-level English course cannot receive a passing grade. For that reason, you should be sure to revise and proofread your paper very carefully before submission
