Bogdanovich, Peter

▪ American film director
born July 30, 1939, Kingston, New York, U.S.

      U.S. film director noted for his attempts to revitalize film genres of the 1930s and '40s.

      Bogdanovich gained experience as a writer, actor, and director in small theatrical productions while turning his lifelong passion for the movies to good effect by contributing criticism and scholarly articles to various periodicals. His first film was a low-budget thriller titled Targets (1968), which he wrote, produced, directed, and starred in. His second, The Last Picture Show (1971), was a box-office hit that won critical acclaim for its portrayal of sexual mores and social change in a drab Texas town in the 1950s. Later films included What's Up, Doc? (1972), Paper Moon (1973), Daisy Miller (1974), At Long Last Love (1975), They All Laughed (1981), and Mask (1985).
