Trivia

The unusual name of the character Gen. Addison Collins (played by John Anderson) was apparently borrowed from the French horn player Addison "Junior" Collins (1927-1976). He was considered a brilliant musician who performed with some of the greatest jazz leaders of the mid-20th century including Miles Davis, Glenn Miller, Charlie Parker, Claude Thornhill, and Gerry Mulligan but eventually fell victim to numerous personal problems.

Goofs

While Margaret is singing in the shower, there is an external shot of the shower tent, and there is a clear shot of an open window in the tent. There would not be an open window looking into a shower tent. In the window is an outline of a mannequin or a person wearing white. See more »

The Fortunes of War
6 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are two unrelated plots here. The more serious has to do with a young war hero, the son of a General, who has risked his life in the face of grave danger. He is on the brink from the moment he arrives. John Anderson plays the blood and guts two star general who brings a trailer to camp so he can do his thing while his son is trying to recover. There is a tender moment between Hawkeye and the General, that looks at the realities of war. The second has to do with Margaret and her fascination with a famous doctor who is going to be at a conference. On the eve of that event, she gets laryngitis and is embarrassed to try to call the guy. He later shows up at the camp to see her because of her heartfelt letter.
