Director Peter Bogdanovich says making "The Last Picture Show" in 1971 was much easier than making the sequel, "Texasville."

"I wouldn't have known how to make this picture 20 years ago," Bogdanovich told reporters. "I wouldn't have known how to direct it. You need a little experience to make a picture with this big a canvas. It was difficult, enriching, life-altering . . . but not fun."
