RIP Peter Bogdanovich

Why am I posting an obit for a non-Spaghetti western director? He does have a connection to the genre because he was hired by producer Sergio Leon to direct “Duck You Sucker”. Problems arose when Sergio and Peter did not see eye to eye on many factors and Leone was also being pressured by Steiger and Coburn to direct the film as that’s why they signed to do the film.

Peter died in his Los Angeles home shortly after midnight on January 6, 2022. He was 82. RIP.

[Thanks to Mike Ferguson for the newspaper clipping showing that Bogdanovich was hired to direct “Johnny & Johnny” later to become “Duck You Sucker” and still later “A Fistful of Dynamite”.
