One of my favorite shows as a youth - thanks for the shots and the link Mike. As always, top notch content.

Cheers for the link! I'm a mega-freaky fan of the TV show and movie, though I'm not sure my girlfriend, who's a nurse, always appreciates my questions comparing her hospital with a TV show. I think the chaos and high-jinks in her hospital are far worse!

I can't remember where I came across it initially (perhaps on this site???), but have any of you seen Magnum photographer Thomas Dworzak's M*A*S*H I*R*A*Q book? http://www.magnumphotos.com/Archive/c.aspx?VP=XSpecific_MAG.BookDetail_VPage&pid=2TYRYDHRKZY2

The first motion picture about a Korean War M.A.S.H. unit was "Battle Circus" (1953 Richard Brooks) with Humphrey Bogart, June Allyson and Keenan Wynn. It had some great scenes showing the unit breaking camp, moving and setting up camp at a new location.

Good, can't complain about anything which reminds us that a greater need for hospital beds is one of the side effects of any war...

Also see:- Lee Miller's photographs taken in WW2 field hospitals if you get the chance.

Mike, I wonder if your mention of Altman has caused many of us to go back and revise our "top ten films"?

Cheers, Robin

Karl, I saw the show that the book is taken from at the New York Goethe Institute about two years ago. It was a very, very good show, both as documentary work and as a conceptual work.

Must get the book.
