Bonnie and Clyde star dies aged 80

Scene stealing actor Michael J. Pollard has died. He was aged 80.

Pollard earned an Oscar nomination for his acting in the 1967 film Bonnie and Clyde.

He plays a getaway driver for the couple – even though he never learned to drive in real life.


Pollard died in a Los Angeles hospital from cardiac arrest.

He was a “journeyman” actor with a talent for improvisation.

Warren Beatty – who played Clyde Barrow – wanted Pollard to play C.W.Moss, the gas station worker who joins the gang.

Film critic Roger Ebert called the casting “a milestone in the history of American movies.”
