Thomasine & Bushrod is a 1974 blaxploitation film directed by Gordon Parks, Jr., written by and starring Max Julien and Vonetta McGee. The title song was written by Arthur Lee and performed by his band Love. Vonetta McGee plays Thomasine and Max Julien plays Bushrod in a film intended as a counterpart to the 1967 film Bonnie and Clyde. Thomasine and Bushrod go on a crime spree through the American south between 1911 and 1915, acting as Robin Hood type heroes who steal from rich, white capitalists, then give to Mexicans, Native Americans and poor whites.
