The Plot Thickens

Welcome to The Plot Thickens, a documentary podcast from Turner Classic Movies. Each season we'll bring you a story about the movies and the people who make them. Our first season is about a young cinephile who quickly rose to become one of Hollywood's top directors. But Peter Bogdanovich soon found himself a victim of jealousy, hubris, public scorn - and a devastating crime. Along with host Ben Mankiewicz, Peter looks back on his life and tries to make sense of fame and failure. "I'm Still Peter Bogdanovich" is a remarkable story of loss, perseverance, and the solace of cinema.

The Plot Thickens

A young film buff named Peter Bogdanovich grows up in New York, learning to obsess over the movies the way his father obsesses over art.  With his sights set on acting, Peter lies his way into the most prestigious acting class in the world.  That’s where he unexpectedly finds his calling as a director – by sparring with one of the biggest TV stars of all time.
