From Paul Schrader, the acclaimed director of Affliction, The Comfort of Strangers, American Gigolo, Blue Collar and Cat People, and the screenwriter of Taxi Driver, Raging Bull and The Last Temptation of Christ, comes Auto Focus, an absorbing glimpse into the colourful life, and mysterious death, of actor Bob Crane. Handsome and charming, Crane became well known as the star of television's hit comedy Hogan's Heroes (1965-1971). Capitalizing on his fame, Crane dove into the freewheeling spirit of the times with relish, having affairs with numerous women. (Auto Focus is a fascinating chronicle of American male sexual identity in the sixties and seventies.) Eventually, Crane teamed up with video technician John Carpenter to document his exploits, an association that may very well have led to his murder in a Scottsdale, Arizona motel room in 1978.
