Death – Veteran Filmmaker Peter Bogdanovich Passes Away At 82 

Death – Obituary

Los Angeles: Veteran Hollywood filmmaker Peter Bogdanovich passed away at the age of 82 on Thursday. 

Reportedly, the filmmaker died early Thursday morning at his home in Los Angeles, said his daughter, Antonia Bogdanovich. She said he died of natural causes. 

His coming-of-age drama, 1971’s The Last Picture Show, which he also co-wrote, earned him eight Oscar nominations including best director. 

The film, set in a Texas town, had an ensemble cast of rising stars including Jeff Bridges and Cybill Shepherd. 

In 2014, he returned with his first movie in 13 years. She’s Funny that Way, starring Owen Wilson and Imogen Poots, was “a celebration of old Hollywood”, wrote BBC Culture’s Nicholas Barber at the time. 

Bogdanovich also starred on the small screen, appearing on HBO’s The Sopranos where he played the role of a psychotherapist.

What Is An Obituary

In national newspapers an obituary (obit for short) is a news article that reports the recent death of a prominent person. Although it tends to focus on positive aspects of the subject’s life this is not always the case. According to Nigel Farndale, the Obituaries Editor of The Times: “Obits should be life affirming rather than gloomy, but they should also be opinionated, leaving the reader with a strong sense of whether the subject lived a good life or bad; whether they were right or wrong in the handling of their public affairs.”

In local newspapers, an obituary may be published for any local resident upon death. A necrology is a register or list of records of the deaths of people related to a particular organization, group or field, which may only contain the sparsest details, or small obituaries. Historical necrologies can be important sources of information.
