M*A*S*H

M*A*S*H

War is a hellish mess, but at the 4077th they’re going down thumbing their noses at any authority figure they see – even those in the mirror. Episodically following the tour of duty of two new surgeons (Donald Sutherland as ‘Hawkeye’ Pierce and Elliott Gould as ‘Duke’ Forrest) who balance the madness of meatball surgery with their off hours carousing, Altman adapted the bestselling novel into the kind of free-flowing yet tightly controlled ensemble satire that he would go on to became famous for.
