The Making of Two Lane Blacktop

I found this great article about the making of Two Lane Blacktop while searching the web for information about Warren Oats. The ‘70s was such a golden age of Hollywood filmmaking. I think major studios were freaking-out in the late ‘60s because they weren’t making films that would appeal to the counter cultural generation, so they hired all these young directors in hopes of catering to hippie kids (who probably didn’t have all that much money to spend anyway). Hollywood eventually realized their folly after the success of Star Wars and Jaws and focused on blockbuster pictures by the late ‘70s, but movies like Two Lane Blacktop remind of us of how things could have been.
