This six-minute promo features director Peter Bogdanovich talking about
THE LAST PICTURE SHOW as its about to be re-released into theaters with
an extra scene added in. This promo was released after the first run of
the movie so Bogdanovich is certainly talking very highly about it
because obviously the thing had already became a hit with the critics
and movie goers. The director talks about how happy he was with the way
the film turned out and he especially calls out the actors saying they
are the ones who made the film. There's also a clip of the deleted
scene that they've added back in and the director talks about why he
cut it and why he's now putting it back in. Bogdanovich also talks
about the two film clips (LIFE WITH FATHER, RED RIVER) that he used in
the picture and why he elected them. There's also talk about the rumor
that he was a film critic before getting into the directors chair.
There's certainly nothing ground-breaking about this promo but I think
it does a good job at making people want to see the film if they hadn't
already and the director also talks the film up so highly to where
people would want to go back and see this added scene. There's
certainly nothing spectacular here but fans should enjoy seeing it.
