Once, twice, three times László Kovács

As previously mentioned, László Kovács worked with director Peter Bogdanovich on six full-length motion pictures, beginning with the 1968 thriller Targets. Just as directors over and over again chose Vilmos Zsigmond to be behind the camera, so too did they recognize the talent of his colleague and countryman. Dennis Hopper was another one of the first directors who recognized Kovács’ skill and put it to use on multiple occasions, producing another fruitful early relationship that helped László to cultivate the unique American New Wave style for which he and Vilmos are lauded. Kovács also worked on multiple films for directors Ivan Reitman, Richard Donner, and Graeme Clifford.

Early in his career, László also routinely worked for the same B-movie directors–Al Adamson, Richard Rush, Peter Perry Jr.–more than once.
