Bogdanovich co-wrote with McMurtry the screenplay for "The Last Picture Show," which Bogdanovich directed to great acclaim. Later, Bogdanovich wrote the screenplay for and directed the sequel "Texasville" based on McMurtry's novel.

They were unable to get the screenplay produced, and McMurtry subsequently turned it into the acclaimed novel (see lot ). A VERY FINE ASSOCIATION COPY.
