Down town Poteau was turned into a movie set on Saturday as Sugar Loaf Mountain Productions made a 30 minute film on the reenactment of a 1934 robbery of a Bank in Poteau by the notorious outlaws Bonnie and Clyde. Bonnie didn't actually rob the bank. She was waiting on with the getaway car on the outskirts of town.

The movie was a lot of fun to be a part of and I want to thank Steven Sewell, of the opportunity to participate in the project.

Sewell spend the remaining part of Saturday evening and Sunday working his magic in editing.


"It gives me great pleasure to report that we have reviewed all the footage, all 19.5 gigabytes, and our assessment is, we have the footage needed to edit a sensational 30 minute reenactment of the Bonnie and Clyde Bank Robbery segment of the 1 hour overall presentation on the history of Poteau, Oklahomam" said Sewell. " I want to give all of you who participated our most heartfelt thanks for all you did on Saturday despite the overwhelming triple digit heat. We did it."
