Welcome to L.A. presents a canvass of Los Angelenos involved in all manner of romantic behavior. Among them are Keith Carradine (The Long Riders) as a rock composer whose success, unbeknownst to him, is due to his father’s money; Sissy Spacek (Badlands) as a free-spirited maid who likes to clean house stripped to the waist; Lauren Hutton (Gator) as a photographer in the midst of an affair with an older millionaire; Geraldine Chaplin (Nashville) as the lonely wife of an ambitious man who fancies herself a modern-day Garbo; and Sally Kellerman (Foxes) as the desperate real estate woman with penchant for afternoon affairs with her clients.

Produced by the great Robert Altman (Come Back to the 5 and Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean) and written and directed by his protégé Alan Rudolph (Love at Large), Welcome to L.A. also features Harvey Keitel (The Piano) and Denver Pyle (TV’s The Dukes of Hazzard) in its cast.
