Thank you. Thank you. Thank you very much.
Aus gegebenem Anlass: Robert Altmans Dankesrede zur Verleihung des Ehren-Oscars 2006, die mit einem verblüffenden biographischen Detail endete:
Oh – one more thing. I’m here, i think, under kind of false pretenses. And I think I have to get – become straight with you. Ten years ago, 11 years ago, I had a heart transplant. A total heart transplant. I got the heart of I think a young woman who is about in her late 30’s. And so by that kind of calculation, you may be giving me this award, too early. Because I think I’ve got about 40 years left on it. And I intend to use it. Thank you very much. Thank you.
