At once among the most iconic and most unusual Texas films, Peter Bogdanovich’s adaptation of Larry McMurtry’s semi-autobiographical coming-of-age novel is a major touchstone of the New Hollywood. Starring Cybill Shepherd, Jeff Bridges, Timothy Bottoms, Ellen Burstyn, Randy Quaid, Ben Johnson, and Cloris Leachman. Johnson and Leachman both won Academy Awards for their career-best work. Polly Platt’s production design is another high point. Along with HUD, THE LAST PICTURE SHOW is presented in honor of Texas writer Larry McMurtry (1936-2021), whose remarkable impact on Texas storytelling will be enduring. In 35mm.
