RIP :salute: Col Potter.

 

M.A.S.H was and have always been one of my favorite TV series. Part of this was the dry form of humor Col Potter delivered.

The man always looked like he was having fun with every part he played. While I liked him as Col. Potter I STILL get a real kick out of him as the crazy Major General Steele earlier in the series.

Just looked him up. Apparently, he played a B~36 flight engineer in Strategic Air Command, with Jimmy Stewart. Those days, they employed real actors. I wish they'd make a good DVD of that someday. Why they don't is a wonder.

 

Seeing it for the first time, I instantly saw MASH as a strong protest anti~vietnam war TV series (and original movie as well) -- but safely, and quite creatively, removed to a more distant forgotten war -- Korea. My dad fought on the ground in the Korean War, and loved MASH to no end, but never noticed the anti~war aspect until one day I told him that it was all about Vietnam. He said it never occured to him until then. :good:
