M*A*S*H (1970

MASH (1970)Watch the trailer!

It's a listener-suggestion pairing of Robert Altman films! Bennett Oberfeld contacted us on Facebook to point out that we had yet to do any films from the acclaimed director and suggested two Altman films, which we agreed with, and thus this pairing! First up, from 1970, it's the film based on the book by Richard Hooker about life in a Mobile Army Surgical Hospital, or M*A*S*H unit, in the Korean War. Starring Donald Sutherland, Elliott Gould, Tom Skerritt, Sally Kellerman, Robert Duvall, Roger Bowen, Rene Auberjonois, Gary Burghoff, Bobby Troup, Timothy Brown, and John Schuck, this looks at the antics of two highly-qualified surgeons, Hawkeye Pierce (Sutherland) and Trapper John McIntyre (Gould) who are assigned to a M*A*S*H unit just a few miles from the front line! With a casual indifference to anything Army-related, except for saving their patients, this film spawned an eleven-season TV series spinoff and added a theme song to our musical lexicon that still lives in our hearts and minds today!
