California Split (1974). The real thing.

Caught it on George Segal day.  Very Altman movie.  Not his best, but I can watch it.  Segal and Gould are a gas.  Looks like they improvised a lot.  Ann Prentiss and Gwen Welles are great, too, and would be better with more time.  Well, that's all fine, and you could say a lot about what is ok about the movie and what isn't; but the real thing about the movie, the real thing is when Bill Denny goes into the massage parlor/nudie joint to gamble.  He goes through a glass door and behind it is what looks like a bedroom with some kids on a bunk bed.  And they're watching TV.  And what's on the TV, what's on it is. . .Basketball Jones.  Yeah.

Basketball Jones is also heavily featured in Being There. I've yet to see the TCM hosts issue a warning that the following film contains a no-longer culturally relevant cartoon, but if and when they do, there will no doubt be seven thousand posters on these message boards expressing rage about it.
