Turin Film Fest to fete Robert Altman

Retro comprises helmer's film and TV work

ROME — The Turin Film Festival will celebrate Robert Altman with a vast retro comprising the prolific helmer’s film and TV work.

Besides his movies, Turin will be showing Altman-directed episodes of TV series such as “Bonanza,” “Combat!,” “Kraft Television Theater” and CBS anthology series “Alfred Hitchcock Presents,” prior to his big breakthrough as a film director with “Mash,” which took the 1970 Cannes Palme d’Or.

Curated by Italo critic Emanuela Martini, the Altman tribute will also include a book of essays and reminiscences, and a photo exhibit in Turin’s National Film Museum.

Other helmers honored in recent years by the respected Italo fest dedicated to indie cinema, include John Huston and Francis Ford Coppola.

Headed by auteur Gianni Amelio, the 29th Turin fest will run Nov. 25-Dec. 3.
