|Long Description||OK, so it's coming out as what appears to be a bare-bones disk instead of a juiced-up Criterion collection title (doubly sad since other Altman classics like ''Secret Honor,'' ''Tanner 88'' and ''Short Cuts'' are getting the CC treatment the same month) but that doesn't matter.rnrnWhat does matter is that I'm finally going to get to see my favorite film in widescreen. rnrnI taped ''Split'' off cable years and years ago. I remember setting up the recording at some ungodly hour (3:25 a.m. or something) because I didn't want to miss it and I ended up watching the movie in its entirity. rnrnElliott Gould gives an amazing, lived-in performance as a lucky card player who takes a liking to a less fortunate gambler and, through a series of episodes, we watch them pass a few weeks hitting the track, going to boxing matches, playing poker, drinking, getting beat up and using a neat home remedy on their bruises over Fruit Loops. Their friendship is one of the best I've seen on-screen. Screenwriter Joseph Walsh appears briefly as Sparkie the shylock and it's a perfect cameo, a pre-''Sopranos'' portrait of a crook haggard by the life (''Didn't I tell you that I've got busts happening all over the city, that my parents are in town, and you come in here and you don't have dollar one?'') rnrnThis is a woefully underseen Altman classic, mostly because it's not available on tape or DVD, it's pretty rare. But it's a great movie -- I even have the one-sheet for ''Split'' hanging over my computer -- and I'm very, very pleased that I'll finally be able to see something *besides* the opening and closing credits in letterbox (it always seemed to underline the cruelty of pan-and-scan when, after the credit ''Directed by Robert Altman'' my beloved black bars disappeared).|

People have mentioned that they had some issues in creating the tables needed to import the data. We added build scripts to the data downloads that should make that easier if you are using MySQL, MS SQL Server or Oracle.
Simply unzip your data download as you normall would. In the folder you will find scripts that can help you build the tables that you then import the data to.
Hopefully, this will make the import process a lot easier for you. You still need to add indexes and foreign keys if you like. The scripts are intended to get the data into your database where you may want to transfer it to other tables or otherwise massage it. So we did not add any indexing or foreign keys to these scripts assuming the tables are only temporary.
