Arguably one of his first notable creations, and what helped fuel his desire to move away from Pacific Title and Art, was his title design for “Bonnie and Clyde,” starring Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty. He used old photographs to establish the flavor of the 1930s outlaws, then added the clicking sound of an old Brownie camera.
Fitzgerald felt showing snapshots of outlaws’ upbringings would give a sense of hard times in the 1930s.
“I didn’t want any sound,” Fitzgerald said. “Just that distinct metallic click of the old Brownie.”
Studio head Jack Warner liked what he saw. Beatty, who also directed the film, and producer Arthur Penn also approved.
