George Hickenlooper

George Hickenlooper's Picture This: The Times of Peter Bogdanovich in Archer City, Texas (1991) was made at the time that Bogdanovich was shooting Texasville, his 1990 sequel to The Last Picture Show (1971). Archer City residents and Picture Show actors reflect on changes over the years, particularly the ups and downs in Bogdanovich's career. Hickenlooper's sensitive interviewing elicits an account of Bogdanovich's years-ago romance with Cybill Shepard and messy breakup with his then wife Polly Platt (bottom still); all three discuss it frankly and dispassionately.
