The Films of Peter Bogdanovich
A passionate lover and chronicler of Old Hollywood and its directing legends, Peter Bogdanovich (1939-2022) took the film industry by storm with a trio of early 1970s smash hits — the dramatic The Last Picture Show; the screwball comedy homage What’s Up, Doc?, and the exquisitely delightful Paper Moon. Commercial disappointment followed, but the cinematic impact of the director’s Daisy Miller (1974), At Long Last Love (1975), Nickelodeon (1976), Saint Jack (1979), and They All Laughed (1981) — to name but a few subsequent Bogdanovich achievements — has been vastly undervalued. Although Bogdanovich eventually found box office success with the acclaimed Mask (1985), his masterful storytelling, direction of actors, and flair for both the comic and romantic remained on vivid display in The Thing Called Love (1993), Noises Off (1991), and The Cat’s Meow (2000).
