Screened September 28–October 2, 2018

Adapting Larry McMurtry’s novel with the author, Bogdanovich depicted a fading small Texas town in 1951, creating a moving yet unsentimental portrait of the impulsive hopes and dashed dreams of young adults and their elders alike; eight Oscar nominations (including for Best Picture and Best Director) yielded wins for supporting actors Ben Johnson and Cloris Leachman. This edit re-integrates almost eight minutes, giving more screen time to the outstanding ensemble.
