AFF Photo of the Week - Robert Altman and Buck Henry

To start off our new weekly posting of photos from festivals past is this classic shot of Robert Altman (soon to be honored with an Academy Award for Lifetime achievement) and Buck Henry during the 1999 festival. That year was a great year for retrospective screenings including Altman's Nashville and McCabe and Mrs. Miller, plus presentations of that year's distinguished Screenwriter recipient, James L. Brooks' films Broadcast News and Terms of Endearment. This particular picture was taken following a screening and Q&A at the Texas Capital of some of Altman's rarely seen television work. The program was co-presented with The Museum of Television & Radio and included episodes of Bus Stop, Premiere, Kraft Suspense Theater and Combat, all directed by Altman during the 60's.
