M*A*S*H: The Movie

Based on the novel M*A*S*H: A Novel About Three Army Doctors, by Richard Hooker, M*A*S*H was released in 1970.

An anti-war, dark comedy, it focuses on life at a M*A*S*H unit during the Korean War, although all overt references to the Korean War were deliberately left out in order to encourage parallels between the war in Korea and the war in Vietnam.

A low-budget film, M*A*S*H was released to critical acclaim, going on to be nominated for five Oscars. It is available in two formats on DVD - the one-disc edition, and the special edition two-disc edition.
