Dir Peter Bogdanovich. 1975, 118 mins. DCP. With Burt Reynolds, Madeline Kahn, Cybill Shepherd, Duilio Del Prete, Eileen Brennan, John Hillerman. Cinephile-as-auteur Bogdanovich’s eighth film in eight years is an homage to 1930s Ernst Lubitsch musical comedies, with stars like Reynolds, Shepherd, Khan and Hillerman falling in and out of one another’s arms while singing classic Cole Porter tunes on lavish sets. The apex of his stormy collaboration with Shepherd, whom he’d discovered on The Last Picture Show (and somehow “directed” on her 1974 album Cybill Does It…to Cole Porter), the film is both a work of hubris and a sweet valentine to old-fashioned showmanship, with everyone hoofing and belting without guile.
