40th anniversary re-issue of Sony Pictures’ newly restored digital version of Peter Bogdanovich’s Director's Cut.
Based on acclaimed writer Larry McMurtry’s novel and featuring a talent-laden cast, led by Jeff Bridges, Cybill Shepherd and Timothy Bottoms, the title is a study of life in a small Texas town during the 1950s, and how the characters' lives intertwine.
Released in 1971 to critical acclaim and public controversy, THE LAST PICTURE SHOW received eight Academy Award nominations (including ‘Best Picture’), winning the Oscars for ‘Best Actor in a Supporting Role’ (Ben Johnson) and ‘Best Actress in a Supporting Role’ (Cloris Leachman). The film also won three BAFTA awards for ‘Best Screenplay’ (Larry McMurtry, Peter Bogdanovich), ‘Best Supporting Actor’ (Ben Johnson) and ‘Best Supporting Actress’ (Cloris Leachman).
