Director Robert Altman Dies

Director Robert Altman, 81, has died in Los Angeles of undisclosed causes. Altman was a beloved director with five Academy Award nominations. His movies included "M*A*S*H," "Gosford Park," "Short Cuts," and "Nashville." His most recent film, released this year, was "A Prairie Home Companion," starring Lindsay Lohan and Meryl Streep.

He was the eternal renegade, refusing to make feel-good movies or boys'-life adventures or simple melodramas — simple anything. For more than 35 years, Robert Altman ... was the truth-telling leper outside the film-industry cathedral, and the most cunning chiseler at the staid monument Hollywood has made of movie art.
