Among the AFI Dallas Stars, Peter Bogdanovich Celebrates The Last Picture Show
But Peter Bogdanovich, named and pictured but served up without any further details, was supposed to be a secret -- chiefly because AFI organizers are trying to lock down the director for two days. On April 2 at 7 p.m., Bogdanovich is confirmed to attend a Nasher Sculpture Garden screening of his 1971 masterpiece The Last Picture Show, for which he will be joined by Sonny Crawford hisself, Timothy Bottoms. But fest heads are also trying to lock down a screening the following day of the underrated 1990 sequel, Texasville, of which a print doesn't exist -- at least, not the heretofore unseen director's cut Bogdanovich wants to debut on April 3. At this very moment, matter of fact, he's trying to convince MGM to strike a print especially for the festival. Word is, the man has some pull.
