Donald Sutherland, Elliot Gould, Jo Ann Pflug, Robert Duvall, and Sally Kellerman star in the celebrated satire that depicts the crazy antics and sexual adventures of surgeons working in a Mobile Army Surgical Hospital during the Korean War. The black humour of the medical team contrasts with the terrible waste of life they’re exposed to in director Robert Altman’s breakout hit that captures the meeting of the free-wheeling sentiments of the sixties counter-culture with the cynicism that would emerge in the seventies, and launched a long-running, popular television series.
