about

For decades, Robert Altman fascinated audiences with pioneering films—among them M*A*S*H, Nashville, The Player, and Gosford Park—that combined technical innovation with subversive, satirical humor and impassioned political engage­ment.

Alongside the intimate illustrated story is a complete visual, historical, and critical narrative of Altman’s films and his process.
     To honor the Altman trademark of using a wide cast of characters, Altman also features contributions from his collaborators and contemporaries including Frank Barhydt, E. L.

Kathryn Reed Altman met and married Robert Altman in 1959 and was an active participant in Altman’s professional life. She lives in New York City and Los Angeles. Giulia D’Agnolo Vallan is a film writer, curator, and programmer who has published numerous books on American cinema, including monographs on Clint Eastwood and William Fried...
