The Lost Picture Show

ReelerTV @ Toronto winds up its coverage today with special guest Peter Bogdanovich, the Oscar-nominated director and film historian who introduced a revival of John Ford's long-lost 1917 silent Bucking Broadway in this year's Dialogues section. The story of a cowboy who rides into the city to save his true love from the evil claws of an industry baron, Bucking Broadway was recently rediscovered and restored; prior to its TIFF screening Sept. 9, even Bogdanovich -- a pre-eminent Ford scholar -- hadn't seen the film.

Meahwhile, Spout Blog proprietor Karina Longworth and I shared our thoughts as we prepared our returns to New York; you can read more about the films noted here and many other Toronto selections at Spout. The Reeler owes many thanks to the site for its support of ReelerTV @ Toronto.

Thanks also to my producers Scott Solary and Luci Westphal of Good Hard Working People; they are indeed good, hard-working and indispensible collaborators week in, week out. And as always, thanks to you for watching; we'll all see you back in NYC soon.
