THE OLD AND NEW HOLLYWOOD OF PETER BOGDANOVICH
Double Feature!
PAPER MOON / WHAT’S UP, DOC?
PAPER MOON
1973, Paramount, 102 min, USA, Dir: Peter Bogdanovich

Director Peter Bogdanovich’s Depression-era tale of confidence man Ryan O’Neal and his young daughter (Tatum O’Neal, who won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar) fleecing naive citizens from town to town in the American Midwest is rendered in glistening and appropriately gritty black, gray and white tones by cinematographer Laszlo Kovacs. Co-starring Madeline Kahn and John Hillerman.


WHAT’S UP, DOC?
1972, Warner Bros., 94 min, USA, Dir: Peter Bogdanovich

A luggage mix-up leads to stuffy academic Ryan O’Neal being taken on a wild ride by free spirit Barbra Streisand in this outrageous farce. Working from a precise and hilarious script by Buck Henry, David Newman and Robert Benton, director Peter Bogdanovich crafts a tribute to 1930s screwball comedies that is fast, funny and packed with delirious supporting performances; Madeline Kahn is a standout in her screen debut.


Screening formats: DCP (PAPER MOON) and 35mm (WHAT’S UP, DOC?)
