1971 MOVIE TRIPLE FEATURE
November 20, 2019  | By David Bianculli

TCM, 8:00 p.m. ET

 
Three wonderful movies, all from 1971, are shown as a terrific tripleheader on TCM. I saw all three of these films on their respective opening days, and have seen each movie many, many times since. At 8 p.m. ET, the action begins with Robert Altman’s McCabe and Mrs. Miller, starring Warren Beatty and Julie Christie in a very unorthodox Western. Then, at 10:15 p.m. ET, it’s Alan J. Pakula’s Klute, starring Jane Fonda in her Oscar-winning role as a hardened call girl, with Donald Sutherland as the titular murder investigator (pictured). And finally, at 12:30 a.m. ET, the last picture show is… The Last Picture Show, starring Timothy Bottoms, Jeff Bridges and Cybill Shepherd, and directed by Peter Bogdanovich. Three great directors. Three great films.
