Movie Medicine Facts:
M.A.S.H. stands for Mobile Army Surgical Hospital. They remained in US Army service until 2006 when the last one was donated to Pakistan.
The operating scenes were almost cut out due to their graphic nature. However, two women who were visiting the set told the producers that the operating scenes were what made the movie, and should be kept in.
Speaking about the troubles he had with the studio, Robert Altman now says, "This film wasn't released - it escaped."
