Another Altman Milestone

Were you aware that the late director Robert Altman, who just passed away last month at the age of 81, was the first director to get the word "fuck" in a Hollywood studio film?

As recently revealed in the documentary Fuck, which traces the word's history, Altman's 1970 film M*A*S*H was the first American film to use the word - as one character says to another: "All right bub. Your fuckin' head is coming right off."

Chalk up another groundbreaker for Altman. Hollywood hasn't been the same since.
