Peter was also an actor, starring in shows like The Sopranos as Dr. Melfi’s psychotherapist, as well as a DJ in Kill Bill Volumes 1 and 2.

He also directed They All Laughed, starring Playboy Playmate of the Year Dorothy Stratten. The two had an affair, before she was brutally murdered by her husband/manager before the movie was released, and he would go on to write a book about it, called The Killing of the Unicorn. He then married her younger sister, Louise, almost 30 years younger than him. They divorced in 2001.

He would go on to release films like Mask, Cat’s Meow, Texasville, Illegally Yours and She’s Funny That Way.

Our thoughts are with Peter Bogdanovich‘s loved ones at this difficult time.

We have sadly lost several big stars already in 2022.
