This celebrated satire depicts the crazy antics and the sexual adventures of Hawkeye Pierce, Trapper John McIntyre and Duke Forrest, all surgeons working in a Mobile Army Surgical Hospital during the Korean War. The black humour of the medical team is contrasted with the terrible waste of life that they are exposed to.
This was director Robert ALTMAN's first major hit, and bears his characteristic stamp of documentary-like camerawork, loose narrative and quick-fire, realistically delivered dialogue. A long-running, popular television series followed, although the only cast member to make the transition was Gary BURGHOFF.
