'''''[=McCabe=] & Mrs. Miller''''' is a 1971 [[TheWestern western]] film directed by Creator/RobertAltman. Altman himself called it an "anti-western", as it ignored or outright [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] a number of usual western conventions. The film at heart is intended as a more realistic portrayal of life in the [[TheWildWest old west]]; something which one reviewer remarked would be like what a documentary filmaker might make if he traveled back in time to the era and filmed people going about their daily lives.
