They All Laughed

Los Angeles: Time Life Films, 1980. Revised Shooting script for the 1981 film, dated February 28, 1980. Included are five vintage black-and-white reference still photographs from the film.

The story of three private detectives hired by jealous husbands to follow two beautiful women, though the detectives then become entangled themselves. In a tragic case of life mimicking art, director Bogdanovich had begun an affair with leading actress Dorothy Stratten and the pair was found out by a private detective hired by Stratten's husband Paul Snider. Snider then killed Stratten and committed suicide before the film was released.

The last theatrical release in which Audrey Hepburn played a lead role. Though now experiencing something of a critical renaissance, Bogdanovich found little box office success upon the film's release, purchasing and distributing the film himself after Twentieth-Century Fox had shelved the film for a year.
