Peter Bogdanovich

Director/actor

Born - 30 July 1939, Kingston, New York, USA
Died - 6 January 2022

American enfant terrible director of Austro-Serbian parentage who never regained the heights achieved by his huge earlier successes, films that won him two Oscar nominations. At his best, the cravat-wearing Bogdanovich was an inventive and sensitive film-maker who worked well with actors in both comedy and drama. After an inauspicious debut with Voyage to the Planet of Prehistoric Women (1966), he achieved critical success with Targets (1968), following it with three more hits - The Last Picture Show (1971), What's Up, Doc? (1972) and Paper Moon (1973), before box-office misfires began to dominate his work: Daisy Miller (1974), At Long Last Love (1975), Nickelodeon (1976), Saint Jack (1979), They All Laughed (1981), Mask (1985), Illegally Yours (1988), Noises Off (1992), The Thing Called Love (1993) and later, after a string of TV movies, The Cat's Meow (2001) and She's Funny That Way (2014). He had begun work on a new film, One Lucky Moon at the time of his death. Another project, Squirrels, also remained unfulfilled. At the same time he maintained a low-key career as an actor, many appearances including those in The Wild Angels (1966), Targets, Opening Night (1977), Mr Jealousy (1997), Festival in Cannes (2001), Broken English (2007), Queen of the Lot (2010), Cold Turkey (2013), The Tell-Tale Heart (2016), The Other Side of the Wind (2018) and Willie and Me (2020). He died from Parkinson's Disease complications.
