blank-adapted military surplus tommy guns!
I can't help but wonder where the, "Bonnie and
Clyde," Thompsons are today. The motion pic-
ture was filmed on location in Texas in 1966
and released the following year. In those days,
most NFA props were supplied by Ellis Mer-
cantile or by Stembridge Gun Rentals. Sadly,
both firms have since quit the business. Their
inventories have been sold. I'd like to think that
each of those wonderful, old movie veterans has
found a comfortable spot in some Thompson collector's gun safe.. .but who can say?
Happy 40th anniversary, "Bonnie and Clyde." Thanks for the "sub-gun" memories.
