Re: Peter Bogdanovich dead at 82.

I always loved listening to him talk about film... or Orson Welles... or whatever.

I have a signed Paper Moon poster from him.

RIP to a legend.

Re: Peter Bogdanovich dead at 82.

I guess that's why this is up on Vulture. In Conversation: Peter Bogdanovich The director on his films, marriage and infidelity, and the deaths he didn’t mourn:

https://www.vulture.com/2022/01/pete...versation.html

Doesn't sound like a nice man but RIP anyway.

Ah, I have The Last Picture Show in the Criterion Collection "American Lost and Found: The BBS Story" on Blu-ray and it's such a wonderful film and tremendous presentation. I'm also such a huge fan of What's Up, Doc? since I was a kid! Here's to Peter, a good director.

Yeah, The Last Picture Show is one of those films that I can't just flip by, if it's on. Also have the America Lost and Found set. What a great deal that was!

That Vulture article is pretty interesting.

RIP

Re: Peter Bogdanovich dead at 82.

The man made some great movies and had so many stories. That's certainly another fountain of film knowledge gone to the world. I always found The Cat's Meow to be underrated. That was the last of his narrative films that I can recall really standing out.

I loved The Last Picture Show, but that vulture article doesn't paint a great picture of Bogdanovich, but most people in Hollywood have similar personalities and misdeeds unforturnately.

Re: Peter Bogdanovich dead at 82.

His first four movies are his best, then he sorta just floundered with mediocrities.

Re: Peter Bogdanovich dead at 82.

I love Targets, such a genuinely unsettling movie, and a chance for Boris Karloff to give a unique performance. Crazy as it sounds, I think that's the only Bogdanovich movie I've seen (Last Picture Show has been on my To-Be-Watched-List for twenty years now).

Re: Peter Bogdanovich dead at 82.

I was a fan but I’ve always preferred listening to Bogdanovich talk about movies instead of his actual directorial efforts

He was on my short list of filmmakers I would like to sit and talk with over a beer.

RIP

^^^^ This. "The Last Picture Show" and "Paper Moon" were equally brilliant. He truly captured that time.

Same here. I'd enjoy listening to his commentary tracks, but didn't much care for his movies.

He also wrote some great books about Hollywood directors and stars collecting interviews he did, and some terrific stuff about Orson Welles who he was close to. His own film career kind of sparked then faded but as a voice and advocate for “old Hollywood” he was second to none imho.

He also had involvement with The Sopranos, in a recurring role and directing an episode. He interviewed David Chase about the show and was on the commentary track with him for the pilot episode.

Here he is on Talking Sopranos not that long ago:

They used to show What's Up Doc regularly on TV in the 70s. Probably an underrated/forgotten comedy classic, now. But it was all farce and slapstick, so it should still hold up great.

I thought he was a really good actor too. He was so dry and funny.

Re: Peter Bogdanovich dead at 82.

Paper Moon & Last Picture Show are two of the best movies ever made hands down.

RIP.
