From the Front to the Back
22 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Leslie Nielsen plays an amiable but dangerous commander of troops at the front. He is reckless and has suffered excessive casualties. He has been operated on after being shot in the thigh, but yearns to get back to the front. Wen the boys realize what a danger he is they begin to work to get him reassigned away from a combat post. They begin to gaslight him by implying that Frank Burns is gay and interested in him, Margaret and Henry are drinking buddies and involved, and that he has lost his sense of reality. They keep moving his quarters to different places. Things fall nicely into place as his own paranoia begins to manifest itself. This is a hilarious episode. Henry is particularly funny in a scene where Hawkeye and Trapper get him drunk. McLean Stevenson was really a fine comedic actor. It's too bad we lost him at such a young age.
