We think of Bonnie and Clyde as the unstoppable, rag tag couple who ran roughshod through the south, robbing banks and inspiring legends everywhere they went but this photo reveals the dark truth behind the iconic couple.

This snapshot of Bonnie and Clyde show just how young they were. Their romantic embrace in this photo makes it clear why so many people were attracted to their story. Even if they were hardened criminals, you wanted to root for them.

By the time Parker and Barrow were gunned down on May 23, 1934, the fascination surrounding them had grown dark.
