Robert Altman was a maverick film director who changed the way we look at many aspects of film: dialogue, casting and the relationship between actors and directors. MITCHELL ZUCKOFF, author and Professor of Journalism at Boston University has written and edited a critically acclaimed oral biography of Altman, using extensive interviews conducted with actors, friends and family and most of all with Altman himself who spent many hours discussing his career with Zuckoff before he died. The result is a unique deeply personal multi-faceted and always lively biography. Tune in tonight and learn about Altman’s extensive career in 50s television, how “ M.A.S.H.” got made, and why Warren Beatty and Altman did not get along on the set of “McCabe and Mrs Miller”. If you enjoy film, do not miss tonight’s show. Zuckoff’s book is titled ROBERT ALTMAN: THE ORAL BIOGRAPHY.
