Product Description:

Peter Bogdanovich created an American film classic with his black and white drama THE LAST PICTURE SHOW. A quarter of a century later, Bogdanovich assembled many in the original cast including Jeff Bridges, Randy Quaid, Cybill Shepherd, and the Bottoms brothers to create a sequel based on a follow-up novel TEXASVILLE by original author Larry McMurtry. The shooting was fraught with problems and drama behind the scenes and the film was a unqualified bomb upon its release. This documentary looks at both the original and the sequel, explaining the trying circumstances over both shoots and how TEXASVILLE became such a failure.

Description by Vanguard International Cinema:

From George Hickenlooper (HEARTS OF DARKNESS: A FILMMAKERS APOCALYPSE about the making of APOCALYPSE NOW) comes this award-winning documentary about the making of another ‘70's classic THE LAST PICTURE SHOW – director Peter Bogdanovich's Academy Award™ Winning masterpiece filmed in a small Texas town… PICTURE THIS follows Bogdanovich to Texas where he candidly reflects on the demise of his marriage, his affair with actress Cybill Sheperd, the murder of his girlfriend Dorothy Stratten, his collaboration with Pulitzer Price-winning novelist Larry McMurtry and the personal traumas suffered by the cast, crises, which bore an uncanny resemblance to the characters they were portraying. PICTURE THIS both humorously and provocatively deconstructs the layers of fiction and reality that went into the turbulent making of Bogdanovich's triumphant work ""The Last Picture Show"" which was acclaimed as ""the greatest film since Citizen Kane.""
