So getaway driver C.W. Moss decided to parallel park while Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker were robbing a small-town bank — brilliant. And then when his gray-haired, overall-wearing daddy told him to “stay away from those two” and keep his mouth shut on a certain afternoon in rural Louisiana, C.W. did just that — a friend to the end.
I’m sorry about the passing of Michael J. Pollard at age 80, but I could never sort out my feelings about C.W.
Pollard’s other standout performance was opposite Robert Redford in Big Fauss and Little Halsy, which I haven’t seen in God knows how long.
