This exhibit draws on the riches of the University of Michigan’s Robert Altman archive, including examples of his novel approach to overlapping dialogue, his exploration of movie genres, his use of ensemble casts, and how audiences and critics viewed his work. It includes materials from M*A*S*H, Gosford Park, Nashville, and more. Researched by students from the U-M Department of Screen Arts & Cultures.

Robert Altman is considered one of America's finest directors. His diverse style and range of vision and cinematic approaches is captured in the photographs, papers, letters, drawings and artifacts culled from the thousands of items that comprise The Robert Altman Collection in the Special Collections Library.
