  1. Strangely enough, I really didn’t care for this film when it was released. It has definitely grown on me. Cloris Leachman absolutely deserved her Oscar and the performances of the entire cast were great…most noteworthy, Ben Johnson & Ellen Burstyn. The cinematography deserves mention as well.

  2. those who read larry mcmurtry, and perhaps you’re one of them, know that Duane’s story is continued in four more books after The Last Picture Show. when the second book, Texasville, came out and was made into a movie, I thought it was great fun to revisit many of the characters (and original cast) twenty years later, with Bogdanovich directing again.
