The words “nervous” and “anxious” do not do justice to what I was experiencing as I sat in what is probably the swankiest private screening room in Toronto (located in Yorkville’s Hazelton Hotel) waiting to interview the fantastic Mr. Bogdanovich.

Turner Classic Movies and Bell are bringing the Road to Hollywood tour to Toronto and we want to send five lucky winners and their guests to a very special screening of The Last Picture Show this weekend with director Peter Bogdanovich in attendance.
