Adapting Larry McMurtry’s novel with the author, Bogdanovich’s place in film history was secured by the raw immediacy with which he depicted a fading small Texas town circa 1951, movingly yet unsentimentally showing the dashed hopes and dreams of young adults and their elders. In 1992, Bogdanovich re-integrated nearly eight minutes of deleted and extended scenes and shots, providing more screen time for the outstanding ensemble including Cybill Shepherd, Timothy Bottoms, and Jeff Bridges.
