Nashville (1975)
Synopsis: Nashville is a 1975 American satirical musical comedy-drama film directed by Robert Altman. The film takes a snapshot of people involved in the country music and gospel music businesses in Nashville, Tennessee. The characters' efforts to succeed or hold on to their success are interwoven with the efforts of a political operative and a local businessman to stage a concert rally before the state's presidential primary for a populist outsider running for President of the United States on the Replacement Party ticket.

They have entered a different control tooth. In the recording

portion, LINNEA and an all-black, male CHOIR sings a gospel song.

OPAL asks BUD who this group is.

BUD returns. HAVEN has just exploded at the piano player and

starts to leave, yelling at the producer.

HAVEN:

Who the hell is playing piano? Get

that hippie out of here... He's got

a tin ear. I asked for Pig, dammit.

I'm moving on 'cause I gotta get to

the airport. When you get my

backups straight, then we'll talk

about cutting this tune here.

He heads for the hallway.

10 INT. HALLWAY - DAY

It is jammed with black singers from the CHOIR. HAVEN hates

being crushed and moves through the congestion like a white

knight. OPAL moves near.

OPAL:

Excuse me, sir. I'm here putting

together a film. I would like to

ask some questions.

She has to fumble with the bulky tape machine and transformer.

HAVEN:

Foreigner?

OPAL:

I'm from BBC television.

HAVEN:

Where the hell is that?

HAVEN nod a politely and leaves the crowded hallway with BUD and

PEARL. He spots LINNEA.

HAVEN:

Linnea.

LINNEA:

How you doing, Haven?

HAVEN:

oh, fine. Couldn't be better.
