Samantha Sidney Altman's girlfriend, Marie Dana, had a right to be upset when she saw Altman's will.
The following day, a goat was delivered to Altman on the set of Buffalo Bill and the Indians, interrupting the filming.
Altman did not return, however, but spent the night elsewhere.
There was one practical joke, however, that Paul directed at Altman that did pay off.
Altman had hosted a dinner for Paul and other members of the cast and had served a very cheap wine that was barely drinkable.
The crewman thrust the wide-mouthed gun above his shoulder where Altman could see it.

They were remaining stationary on the arc—where Altman was sure to pick them up.
"Drive to Altman's," she said to the cabman, as she stepped inside the vehicle.
Mr. Altman, his wife and daughter Agnes felt the same way, and the good man did not urge his proposal.
