Bonnie & Clyde, Kissing & Embracing, 1933 Vintage gelatin silver print (Anonymous)

One of several Bonnie and Clyde photos on display in Dallas show the murderous outlaws in a steamy embrace days before they were ambushed and gunned down by authorities.

The photos of Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker are part of a photo exhibit at the Photographs Do Not Bend Gallery in Dallas. The photos, which are from the personal collection of the gallery's director, Burt Finger, show the days leading up to the couple's bloody death, and photos of their bullet-sprayed car and lifeless bodies.

The duo, who were suspected of 13 murders and multiple robberies and burglaries, were gunned down by authorities near Sailes, La., on May 23, 1934, after a massive manhunt. The couple died instantly, according to the FBI.

Finger told the Daily Mail the previous owner got the photos from her uncle, who worked at a newspaper during Bonnie & Clyde's reign. According to the gallery's press release, the couple became "America's most romanticized" criminals during the "Public Enemy Era" of the early 30s, when John Dillinger and Al Capone were widely known.
