|Pages/Publication Date:||336 / 2014|
In the 1960s, not long after they were married, Robert Altman's wife Kathryn began making scrapbooks of each project the director embarked upon, as actors, crew members, and locals became part of their lives for a while. Opening with family photos and snapshots from his early television work, this oversized album charts Altman's career through films like M*A*S*H, McCabe and Mrs. Miller, Nashville, 3 Women, The Player, Short Cuts, and Gosford Park in hundreds of candid photos and behind-the-scenes shots. Throughout, personal memoirs from friends like E.L. Doctorow, Roger Ebert, Jules Feiffer, Julian Fellowes, Tess Gallagher, Garrison Keillor, Martin Scorsese, Lily Tomlin, and Kurt Vonnegut reveal Altman's profound humanism.
