Bogdanovich's 1971 film The Last Picture Show, based on the novel by Larry McMurtry, opens on Saturday Nov. 12, 1951 -- the eve of the Korean War; it was the beginning of the end for movie-houses like the one in the film, whose last picture show is that of Howard Hawks’ Red River.
Set in a bleak, lonely Texas town, The Last Picture Show is a portrait of the dying West, following the daily grind of aimless teenagers Sonny (Timothy Bottoms), Duane (Jeff Bridges) and Jacy (Cybil Shepherd).
Shot in evocative black and white and featuring a soundtrack led by Hank Williams, The Last Picture Show is one of the key films of the 1970s.
