Film critic

Bogdanovich was a film programmer at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City in the early 1960s. Bogdanovich, an ardent moviegoer who saw up to 400 films a year in his teens, championed American filmmakers such as Orson Welles, John Ford, and Howard Hawks. He then authored a book about Ford based on the notes he took for the director’s retrospective at MoMA. Bogdanovich also brought neglected American film pioneers like Allan Dwan to light. Between 1952 and 1970, Bogdanovich kept a card file of every film he viewed, replete with reviews.

Bogdanovich was influenced by the Cahiers du Cinéma critics of the 1950s, particularly critic-turned-director François Truffaut. He established himself as a cinema journalist with articles in Esquire before becoming a filmmaker. Pieces of Time is a collection of these articles (1973).

Career as a Director

Much of the inspiration that led Bogdanovich to his cinematic creations came from early viewings of the film Citizen Kane. In an interview with Robert K. Elder, author of The Film That Changed My Life, Bogdanovich explains his appreciation of Orson Welles’s work.The 32-year-old Bogdanovich was hailed by critics as a “Wellesian” wunderkind when his best-received film, The Last Picture Show, was released in 1971. The film earned eight Academy Award nominations, including Best Director, and won two statues, for Cloris Leachman and Ben Johnson in the supporting acting categories.

Bogdanovich co-wrote the screenplay with Larry McMurtry, and it won the 1971 BAFTA award for Best Screenplay. Bogdanovich cast the 21-year-old model Cybill Shepherd in a major role in the film and fell in love with her, an affair that eventually led to his divorce from Polly Platt, his longtime artistic collaborator and the mother of his two daughters.

 

 

Paper Moon, a Depression-era comedy starring Ryan O’Neal that won his 10-year-old daughter Tatum O’Neal an Oscar as Best Supporting Actress, proved the high-water mark of Bogdanovich’s career. Forced to share the profits with his fellow directors, Bogdanovich became dissatisfied with the arrangement. The Directors Company subsequently produced only two more pictures, Coppola’s The Conversation (1974), which was nominated for Best Picture in 1974 alongside The Godfather Part II, and Bogdanovich’s Daisy Miller, which had a lackluster critical reception.

Later career

In 1998, the National Film Preservation Board of the Library of Congress named The Last Picture Show to the National Film Registry, an honor awarded only to “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant films”.

In 2001, Bogdanovich resurfaced with The Cat’s Meow. Returning once again to a reworking of the past, this time the supposed murder of director Thomas Ince by Orson Welles’s bête noire William Randolph Hearst, The Cat’s Meow was a modest critical success but made little money at the box office. Bogdanovich says he was told the story of the alleged Ince murder by Welles, who in turn said he heard it from writer Charles Lederer.

In 2010, Bogdanovich joined the directing faculty at the School of Filmmaking at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. On April 17, 2010, he was awarded the Master of Cinema Award at the 12th Annual RiverRun International Film Festival. In 2011, he was given the Auteur Award by the International Press Academy, which is awarded to filmmakers whose singular vision and unique artistic control over the elements of production give a personal and signature style to their films.

Cause of Death

Bogdanovich died from natural causes at his home in Los Angeles, on January 6, 2022, at the age of 82.
