    The best things about Bogdanovich's first film, Targets, besides Boris Karloff's performance, were Laszlo Kovacs' beautiful photography and Polly Platt's great sets. They made the film look a lot more expensive that it actually was.

    She was also partly responsible for the Simpsons I believe. Didn't she bring them to Tracey Ullman's attention or something?

    Loved her work on the Last Picture Show, the sets and look of the film brought the book to life. And when you consider her and Director Peter Bogdanovich's marriage was falling apart and he was having an affair with one of the films stars (Cybil Shepherd) at the time it really shows what a great work ethic she had.
