California Split

California Split

A FILM BY: Robert Altman
WRITTEN BY: Joseph Walsh
STARRING: George Segal, Elliott Gould, Ann Prentiss

Picked by Rebecca, Projectionist

Rebecca says: Elliott Gould and George Segal star in one of Altman’s finest films; a bittersweet and gentle comedy about compulsive gamblers and one of the most elusive types of human relationships: Friendship. We follow Bill and Charlie from the racetrack to the casino to the haze of the 5am poker table, all with Altman’s signature rich cacophony at every turn. As Gould would tell an interviewer on the film’s 40th Anniversary, “It’s not about gambling at all. It’s about staying alive.”
