It was a book before it was a movie – a novel written by a doctor who had served in the Korean War.
The 1970 film M*A*S*H was directed by Robert Altman. I saw it in a theater in downtown Philadelphia and thought tickets were expensive because they were $3.00.
I believe that Gary Burghoff (Radar) was the only actor who played the same role in the film and TV show.
I am no expert on his films but certainly recommend Breathless, his debut.
This list of the top 100 British films reminded me of the great comedies produced by the Ealing Studios in the later 1940s/1950s. I recommend all of them. I am posting overviews and then stuff on specific films. Alec Guinness stars in several of them.
The Ladykillers (1955). Its on disc from Studio Cabal/Lionsgate. The Coen Brothers remake is not as good.
The Maggie (1954)
Tiny Tim was a unique musician who had 15 minutes of fame in the late 1960s. He had one hit record with an old song, “Tiptoe Through the Tulips” (1968), and appeared on Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-In. His wedding was televised on the Tonight Show. in 1969. If you didn’t live through this era, I can’t explain this to you.
He even starred in an independent horror film, Blood Harvest (1986).
This is from my favorite Keaton film, Steamboat Bill, Jr. which was released in 1928.
Some of these are in a recent box set from the Criterion Collection.
Criterion has a great box set of 15 films.
