Star Movies Select HD features the evergreen Comedy- M*A*S*H
For the past three weeks, Star Movies Select HD has featured a host of great films that stick true to its standard of curation with film such as Goodfellas, Braveheart, Lawrence of Arabia and one more. This time, the channel will showcase one of the most famous dark comedies- MASH that continues to be one of the films to watch at least once in your lifetime.
Nearly 50 years ago, MASH changed the course of cinema that made the director of the film, Robert Altman and its stars—Donald Sutherland, Elliott Gould, and Sally Kellerman into icons. It also set a new standard for what a studio film could be and also stood as a rebellious stance on filmmaking. Based on the novels of Richard Hooker, it follows the zany surgeons and other staff of the 4077th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital in Korea. It features a series of episodes during which they put their stamp on the camp including a football game against a larger unit with thousands riding on it, a trip to Tokyo to operate on a congressman's son and play a little golf, and finding out if the head nurse is a natural blonde.
MASH is indeed one of those films that feature hilarious gags and one-liners that cannot be missed.
Watch the film tonight on Star Movies select HD at 9pm!
