M*A*S*H

The 4077th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital is shaken up by the arrival of Captains "Hawkeye" Pierce (Donald Sutherland) and "Duke" Forrest (Tom Skerritt)...crack surgeons but lousy soldiers. Joined by renowned chest-cutter "Trapper" John McIntyre (Elliott Gould), the surgeons set about dealing with the daily carnage of the war by raising hell. From getting rid of the idiotic Major Burns (Robert Duvall) to helping the camp dentist commit "suicide", there's no lengths the Swampmen won't go to to distract themselves from the horrors of war.

Mistakes

Near the end of the film, there is a football game played between the rival MASH units. Although the game is supposed to be taking place in a remote location of Korea in 1951, late model 1960's automobiles can be seen driving on a nearby highway as the game progresses. This gave away the fact that the football scenes were shot at a university in Southern California.

Trivia
