“What you get with George is masculinity and sensitivity, plus a brain,” remarked director Mike Nichols with regards to the late George Segal, who passed away in March. With his handsome good looks, appealingly down-to-earth screen presence, and ability to play across drama and comedy, Segal became one of the most popular stars of the 1970s and an avatar of the era’s changing social attitudes. This selection of three of his most memorable films—the gritty POW drama KING RAT, offbeat caper THE HOT ROCK, and freewheeling gambling comedy CALIFORNIA SPLIT—showcase Segal’s easygoing charm and remarkable range.
