  • The festival is held annually to commemorate and reenact the filming of the famous “bank robbery scene” in the 1967 Warner Brothers movie Bonnie and Clyde, starring Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty. The scene was shot at the town’s historic bank building on the town square. Additionally, the Pilot Point area was a known hang-out of the REAL Bonnie and Clyde and the Barrow Gang. Local legend has it that a family member lived in the area and offered the gang safe haven.

  • Hidden in the archives at the museum and the library, there are historical tales of Denton residents from long ago. The town had its share of lawmen, outlaws, and painted ladies, but there are other less flamboyant (though no less colorful) characters in our past that have been long forgotten. Shelly Tucker, a professional storyteller also known as "The Ghost Lady," delights in digging up these skeletons that are lurking in the shadows of our "closet" to share them with audiences.

  • 1955 – Film star James Dean dies in a road accident aged 24. James Byron Dean (February 8, 1931 – September 30, 1955) was an American actor. He is a cultural icon of teenage disillusionment, as expressed in the title of his most celebrated film, Rebel Without a Cause (1955), in which he starred as troubled teenager Jim Stark. The other two roles that defined his stardom were loner Cal Trask in East of Eden (1955) and surly ranch hand Jett Rink in Giant (1956). Dean's enduring fame and popularity rest on his performances in only these three films, in two of which he is in the leading role. Dean's premature death in a car crash cemented his legendary status.
