Director: Robert Altman
Writer: Ring Lardner, Jr.
From novel: MASH by Richard Hooker
Keywords: Dark Comedy, Korean War
The 4077th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital finds ways to cope with the Korean War. Erratic character-driven dark comedy which has obvious merit but has not aged well; what appeared avant-garde in 1970 is now cruel, misogynistic and crass. Gary Burghoff is the sole cast member carried over into the TV series adapted from Hooker's book, M*A*S*H, a format much more suitable.
