This theatrical trailer is for the 1971 feature film The Last Picture Show, directed by Peter Bogdanovich, adapted from the 1966 novel of the same name by Texan author Larry McMurtry. The film stars Timothy Bottoms, Jeff Bridges, Cybill Shepherd, Ben Johnson, Eileen Brennan, Ellen Bustryn, Cloris Leachman, Clu Gulager, Randy Quaid, and John Hillerman. The film is set in the early 1950s in a bleak, declining West Texas town, where two friends, Sonny Crawford and Duane Jackson, come of age. The Last Picture Show was shot on location in Archer City, the basis for the fictional town of Anarene, Texas.
