Little Big Man is one of my all time favorites. I found it very powerful. Thank you.

When I first saw Bonnie and Clyde as a teenager, I didn't quite know what to make of it, but I knew I wanted to see it again. I wound up seeing it five times in the theater. Those repeated showings opened up a world of amazement for me. I never knew that a movie could do so many things all at once. It was funny, sad, shocking, and totally entertaining from start to finish. Even the opening credits were done in a way never seen before, and the cast was absolutely flawless. Thank you, Mr. Penn,...

To Family and Friends of Arthur Penn,

The world has lost a very creative and talented man of his time. He did a outstanding job with on the "Bonnie and Clyde" movie.
In this difficult time I hope the family will draw happiness from the many memories he must have made over the years.
Please find hope from the following thought found at Revelation 21:4-"God promises to wipe out every tear from our eyes, and death will be no more".

My thoughts and prayers are with the PENN FAMILY in their time of grief.
At ti mes like these, drawing close to God in prayer is what will "sustain you." (Psalm 55:22) I hope this will bring the family a measure of comfort.

Penn did a great job with Alice's Restaurant for Arlo. It captured the times and feelings of the era like no other motion picture. The settings, locations, and Officer Obie will forever provide the future with a snapshot of the 60's as they really were. Thanks and Rest in Peace.
