I hope you have all had a great week. I am personally working a bit more on self-care and relaxation. I tend to be bad at that. To that end, I am planning to watch a few comedic movies this weekend. With the passing of Peter Bogdanovich yesterday, now seems like a good time to take a look at some of his movies.
Bogdanovich was quite the renaissance man when it came to films. He was not only an award-winning director, but also an actor, writer, producer, critic, and a film historian. He is probably best known for some of his earlier films like The Last Picture Show (which he also co-wrote the screenplay for with Larry McMurtry), What's up Doc, and Paper Moon, just to name a few.
If you are looking for something light to watch this weekend, I would like to suggest either What's Up Doc with Barbara Streisand, Ryan O'Neal, and Madeline Kahn, or Noises Off. While Noises Off is not one of Bogdanovich's critically acclaimed, award-winning films, it's just a fun watch! This movie falls under the "madcap comedy" category and has an incredible all-star cast. This film features Carol Burnett, Michael Caine, Denholm Elliott, Julie Hagerty, Marilu Henner, Mark Linn-Baker, Christopher Reeve, John Ritter, and Nicollette Sheridan.
That is it for today, posse! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and find lots of reasons to laugh! With any luck, these movie themed Dad jokes will get you started on that. If you need some quieter entertainment you can always reed one of my books. You can find them all at www.StephenBurckhardt.com/books.
