American director Robert Altman’s career spanned forty years, and included critical and commercial successes like M*A*S*H, McCabe and Mrs. Miller, The Long Goodbye, and Nashville. Altman’s films often featured large ensemble casts, improvisational dialogue, and social commentary – all of which are on full display in 2001’s Gosford Park. Based on an idea of an Agatha Christie-style whodunit set at an English manor house that Altman developed with Bob Balaban, Gosford Park’s script was written by Julian Fellowes, who won an Academy Award for Best Screenplay. Fellowes later went on to create the period drama series Downton Abbey, which, like Gosford Park, centered on both the aristocrats and the servants at a country estate. Now, as Downton Abbey moves to the big screen this fall, Legends Podcast goes on a hunting weekend to the English countryside to see what all the fuss is about.
