One of the most popular movies from the 1970s, “What’s Up Doc?” was director Peter Bogdanovich’s homage to the screwball comedy genre. Besides its commercial success, it was critically acclaimed as well. Here’s what the New York Times’ Vincent Canby had to say in his review of the film: : “‘What’s Up, Doc?’ is, admittedly, stuffed with references to the comedies of the thirties (as well as to some of the twenties and forties), by Hawks, McCarey, and a number of lesser directors. It also recalls their marvelously inane concerns for mistaken identities and motives, and their great character actors who made the landscapes of these films as immediately familiar to us as those in the Bugs Bunny cartoons, which gave Bogdanovich’s farce its title.” This is a great movie to end our series. We'll be able to discuss what Bogdanovich borrowed and what was original in this modern screwball classic.
