Product Description:

This director's-choice double feature includes two 1970s classics from filmmaker Peter Bogdanovich. First up, the madcap NICKELODEON is a whirling ride of gags, set pieces, and Hollywood in-jokes that takes audiences on a trip back to the movie industry's infancy in the early 20th century. A bashful young attorney named Leo Harrigan (Ryan O'Neal) has a chance meeting with a movie producer and subsequently lands in the business of churning out screenplays and directing movies with a small but loyal film crew. Soon enough, Leo's new saboteur of a leading man, the vulgar Buck Greenway (Burt Reynolds), cons his way into a marriage with the actress of Leo's dreams.

THE LAST PICTURE SHOW is a bittersweet coming-of-age tale about life in a small, sleepy Texas town during the early 1950s. Shot in haunting black-and-white, it focuses on best friends Sonny Crawford (Timothy Bottoms) and Duane Jackson (Jeff Bridges). While Duane dates the beautiful but fickle Jacy Farrow (Cybill Shepherd), shy Sonny carries on an illicit affair with a coach's wife, Ruth Popper (Cloris Leachman), a sad, plain woman whose only joy appears to be the stolen moments they share. By delving into the intertwining lives of the town's diverse residents and using the closing of the town's only cinema as both a physical and metaphoric backdrop for the characters' lives, SHOW masterfully explores issues of love, loneliness, innocence lost, and disillusionment. This set includes featurettes and commentary from Bogdanovich himself.
