I love They All Laughed. Really underrated homage to the screwball comedy. John Ritter, Audrey Hepburn (her last film), Ben Gazara and Dorothy Stratten (also her last film). Dorothy looked absolutely luminous. I think she would have been a huge star. She had real screen presence, and she was very serious about her craft.

Peter Bogdanovich is somebody I'd really like to meet. His encyclopedic knowledge of film is pretty much legendary at this point. Also, What's Up, Doc?, Paper Moon and The Last Picture Show rank among the finest American films of the 1970s.
