Ryan O'Neal's passing returned me to a nice '90s friendship I had with the late producer Polly Platt, who was married to Peter Bogdanovich between the late 60s and early '70s, and was a key creative contributor to PB's Targets, The Last Picture Show, What's Up Doc and Paper Moon. Talk about your glorious days of early '70s cinema. Platt, Bogdanovich and O'Neal were joined at the hip for two or three years back then (along with several other hip industry hots). Now all three arw gazing down upon the planet, like Keir Dullea at the end of 2001.
