Robert Altman - The Long Goodbye

Altman directing Nina van Pallandt & Elliott Gould ‘The Long Goodbye’ (1973)

“People talk about my signature. But I ask them if they ever saw Howard Hawks’ films. They’re filled with overlapping dialog. Everything I’ve learned has come from watching other directors: Bergman, Fellini, Kurosawa, Huston and Renoir.” –Robert Altman
