The Long Goodbye
Saturday, Feb 11 at 5:30 pm
Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. Robert Altman. 1973, 112 mins. 35mm print courtesy of the UCLA Film & Television Archive. With Elliott Gould, Nina van Pallandt, Sterling Hayden. With the playfully unlikely casting of anti-heartthrob Gould as private eye Philip Marlowe, Altman’s film is both a satire of and an homage to the world of Raymond Chandler, a neo-noir classic that transplants the novelist’s languid vision of Los Angeles to the 1970s. Though Altman had become something of an Oscar darling—with M*A*S*H, McCabe and Mrs. Miller, and Nashville racking up the nominations—The Long Goodbye was evidently too shaggy a proposition. Even Vilmos Zsigmond’s lusciously seedy work went ignored, despite winning Best Cinematography from the National Society of Film Critics.
