1. Breakthrough: MASH (the movie)
In 1969, the not-yet-famous movie director Robert Altman was given the chance to direct a movie based off of an obscure Korean War novel. The film ended up getting five Oscar nominations. It won the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay.
It wasn’t just Altman’s direction that made the film so great. It was also the talent of the actors and actresses. MASH starred Donald Sutherland, Robert Duvall, Elliot Gould, and Sally Kellerman, among others. So popular was the movie that it would go on to become a hit TV show starring Alan Alda.
