Storyline

This homage to the childhood days of the motion pictures starts in 1910, when the young attorney Leo Harrigan by chance meets a motion picture producer. Immediately he's invited to become a writer for him - the start of a sensational career. Soon he's promoted to a director and shoots one silent movie after the other in the tiny desert village Cacamonga with a small crew of actors. But the competition is hard: the patent agency sends out Buck Greenway to sabotage them. When they visit L.A., his crew is surprised by a new species: fans!

Peter Bogdanovich still deserves a good reputation
3 July 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

I've read about how, after Peter Bogdanovich enjoyed a trio of critical and commercial successes ("The Last Picture Show", "What's Up, Doc?" and "Paper Moon"), he suffered a trio of critical and commercial failures ("Daisy Miller", "At Long Last Love" and "Nickelodeon"). Now that I've seen the last one, I would say that it's no masterpiece in any way, shape or form, but not terrible. Some of the scenes drag a little bit, but this look at the early days of the film industry has its moments. I guess that a lot of people thought that Bogdanovich was making too many nostalgia pieces and thus turned this one down. I wouldn't recommend it as your first choice, but you might want to check it out if possible. I personally think that Peter Bogdanovich deserves a lot more credit than we give him. You'll really laugh at Ryan O'Neal's and John Ritter's confusion over "Tell me where to put it." Also starring Burt Reynolds, Tatum O'Neal, Stella Stevens and Brian Keith.
