Personal Quote:

[on leaving M*A*S*H (1972)] I probably got too big for my britches. The biggest mistake I made was I thought everybody loved McLean Stevenson. It was Henry Blake that people loved. So when I went out and did The McLean Stevenson Show (1976), nobody gave a damn.

Trivia:

In the season finale of the first season of M*A*S*H (1972), the name of his character's (Henry Blake) wife is Mildred. In the second season, her name was changed to Lorraine. When he was replaced by Harry Morgan, Morgan's character, Colonel Potter, had a wife named Mildred. See more »
