Set during the Korean War in the 1950’s

Lieutenant Bricker is making a documentary about MASH units and General Clayton recommends the 4077th. Bricker wants one of the doctors to "star" in his documentary and Hawkeye Pierce agrees when faced with the possibility that the role could go to Frank Burns. The documentary is nothing more than overhyped propaganda. In the night, Pierce and McIntyre destroy the film by exposing it to light. After much convincing by Hawkeye and Trapper, Col. Blake allows them to remake the film, casting Hawkeye as a Groucho Marx-type doctor and Trapper as a Harpo Marx-esque surgeon. The crowd loves it, but Gen. Clayton is not impressed at first. After the film is over Clayton does find the ending exceptional.

Hope you enjoy it,
Kenny, Meds, Al & Harry
