Robert Bernard Altman (19252006) was an American film director, producer, and screenwriter, who came to prominence in the UsefulNotes/NewHollywood era. He was the most prolific of that generation, the most political and critical director of his time, and the one who retained his independent spirit even when that era ended, and retained it until his final film. He developed a reputation as the industry maverick whose films were admired but little loved, but eventually he came to be seen as one of America's greatest and most original film-makers.

* AuteurLicense: Earned it after ''{{Film/MASH}}'' and surprisingly hung onto it for the remainder of his career, even after numerous box office failures. A major factor was that he knew how to stay on-budget and film efficiently. Also he had a strong reputation as an actor-friendly director, which led to big names willingly taking pay cuts so they could work with him.

* RewatchBonus: A patron saint of this trope. His films have so many little subtleties you won't pick up on the first viewing, not to mention some instances of FridgeBrilliance that you'll only get ''after'' you see the film.

* FanDisservice: He liked doing a variation on this where an attractive person appears nude, but the context of their nudity is so uncomfortable it makes the situation non-erotic. Examples include Sally Kellerman in ''{{Film/MASH}}'', Gwen Welles in ''{{Film/Nashville}}'' and Creator/JulianneMoore in ''Film/ShortCuts''.
