Director, writer, producer, actor, and Hollywood historian Peter Bogdanovich will be a guest programmer at the New Beverly Theatre in Los Angeles beginning later this month. Bogdanovich, who's work includes "The Last Picture Show," "What's Up Doc," and "Mask" to name a few, has selected films that have inspired him for the New Beverly Theatre to showcase. The theatre will also be showing a selection of some of Bogdanovich's own films.
Some films that Bogdanovich has selected include the Alfred Hitchcock directed, Cary Grant starrer, "North by Northwest," and the Orson Welles picture, "Touch of Evil." I think the highlight will be seeing Bogdanovich's own black & white masterpiece, "The Last Picture Show," which plays January 21 and 22. Bogdanovich himself may even be making appearances at some of the screenings!
