Larry Karaszewski on

What’s Up Doc?

Released 1972
Distributor Warner Bros.

One of the biggest comedy hits of the early ’70s. Following up on his dramatic breakthrough with The Last Picture show, movie scholar turned director Peter Bogdanovich evokes ’30s screwball comedies and classic Looney Tunes in this self-consciously wacky homage to Bringing Up Baby. As befits the brief post Easy Rider era when directors were as famous as stars, this is an unusually auteur-centered trailer.
