M*A*S*H

Abyssinia, Henry - S3-E24

Corrected entry: The cast was not told that Mclean Stevenson's character Henry was going to be killed off until the last possible second so that the shocked reaction of the cast was used in the show to reflect the reactions of the characters at the death of Henry.

Sonja Marie

Correction: Larry Gelbart has stated numerous times that all of the actors knew exactly what was happening and that there were in fact two takes of this scene, with the second take being the one used. To paraphrase what Mr. Gelbart typed in alt.fan.mash "What we see on the screen is called acting, and Gary and the rest of the cast performed superbly"

Interestingly enough, Ho Jon, later revealed to be the guilty party, is not on Hawkeye's list - yet he shows up uninvited, just to be ensnared by Hawk's clever ploy. Note also that he had no way of knowing what the purpose of the meeting was, so we cannot ascribe to him the motive of wanting to find out how much Hawkeye knew.
