Episode 117: 1971 Retrospective: McCabe & Mrs. Miller / Death in Venice / The Last Picture Show

“Comedy is the hardest thing to get right. I remember a joke we did in ‘What’s Up, Doc?’ that didn’t get a single laugh. So we moved the shot a foot-and-a-half to one side, and all of a sudden, the laugh was there. It drives you crazy; the balance is so delicate.”

Peter Bogdanovich, Director of The Last Picture Show
