NICKELODEON

United Kingdom, United States | 1976 | Peter Bogdanovich

NICKELODEON film still

In 1911, a Chicago lawyer (Ryan O’Neal) and a Florida salesman (Burt Reynolds) accidentally become involved in the budding motion picture business, making short, silent thrill comedies for nickelodeons. Peter Bogdanovich’s valentine to early movies, shown here in his preferred b&w version (it was originally in color and 8 min. shorter), was derived from true stories told to him by pioneering filmmakers Allan Dwan and Raoul Walsh. DCP. 129 min.
