The Last Pic­ture Show (USA 1971, Cert 15, 118 mins)

The June Cor­rie Film Club pre­sen­ta­tion is the glo­ri­ous Bog­danovich clas­sic – The Last Pic­ture Show.

Shot in black and white, which was un­usual for its day, and with a won­der­ful Hank Wil­liams score, this film was nom­i­nated for eight Os­cars and won two. The nominations in­clud­ing best pic­ture, best ac­tor, best ac­tress and best sup­port­ing ac­tor and ac­tress. It also won three Golden Globes for best pic­ture, best di­rec­tor and best lead­ing ac­tor. On top of that it won three Baf­tas for best screen­play and best sup­port­ing ac­tor and ac­tress.

For many, it is one of the great­est films ever made and it cer­tainly has a su­perb cast.

This clas­sic will be screened at Cor­rie and San­nox Vil­lage Hall to­mor­row (Sun­day) at 8pm. All wel­come.
