The Last of the Old Masters: Peter Bogdanovich on Allan Dwan


Allan Dwan has been a special case in auteur studies since Andrew Sarris pronounced him as possibly “the last of the old masters” in The American Cinema; Peter Bogdanovich’s long-out-of-print 1971 study Allan Dwan: The Last Pioneer followed shortly after. In this 30-minute tribute to Dwan, filmed in Quentin Tarantino’s house in the Hollywood hills, Bogdanovich lovingly recalls his encounters with the great director, and traces Dwan’s career from the early silent era to the films he made for producer Benedict Bogeaus in the fifties.
