M*A*S*H Director Hates TV Version

6 July 2001 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Director Robert Altman hates the TV series based on his 1970 movie M*A*S*H - because it completely missed the point of the film. Altman received an Oscar nomination for his irreverent black comedy set in a Mobile Army Surgical Hospital during the Korean war but he says the subsequent hit TV series, that used the same characters as those played by Donald Sutherland, Elliott Gould and Robert Duvall in the movie, was "despicable". Altman fumes, "Personally I hate that television series; I think it was despicable. It was just the opposite of what my M*A*S*H intended. It became a propaganda piece." Altman adds that in his movie he tried to convey the lack of patriotic feeling in the war. He says, "It was as big a comment as I could make. You never saw the war, y'know? Just the results of it. The only gunshot you saw was in the football game at half time." »
