05.14.05Alamo South Lamar Saw this at the Alamo South lamar with Bogdanovich in attendance. I bought his book and he signed it while i went off on how great another book of his, Who The Devil Made It, was. Then he gave a little pre-screening talk about a few things and an epic 90-minutes of Q&A after the film. 90 minutes! In there were tons of questions about the film, some anecdotes in various levels of connectivity to the film, and a little impersonation thrown in here and there to keep things interesting. Actually, it was all interesting. For anyone into film history, American film history in particular, the guy is one of the luckiest SOBs to still be around. It's a real shame that he hasn't had a hit in a while to get him off the shelf collecting dust, although I'm not really sure what he could do with today's moviegoing audience. He's made a few really great movies though as well as a movie that captures the romantic frontiersman quality of the early days of hollywood that's a favorite of mine (Nickelodeon, John Ritter's feature film debut, check it out if you love the stories of old hollywood), and as Orson said: "You really only need ONE."

PS, i also asked Bogdanovich how long he kept his card catalog of all the movies he'd seen going and he said 19 years. 19 years of catalogging every movie he saw with notes on each screening. We'll see where I am with this after 19 years I guess.
