Talk about all things M*A*S*H -- the novel, the film, the television series, even the play. Not to mention the spin-offs, merchandise, cast, crew and anything else you can think of to talk about.

Cast members in the news

Post by RJ »

How about we use this thread to post links to news articles relating to cast members from the series? To get the ball rolling, here are some tidbits about Alan Alda, Loretta Swit and Jamie Farr:
  • Alda delivered this year's commencement speech at The Williston Northampton School in Massachusetts on June 4th. His granddaughter was one of the graduates and according to an article in, when a plane flew overhead, Alda joked about incoming wounded.
  • A live reading of Alan Alda's new play, Radiance: The Passion of Marie Curie, was performed on June 1st at the World Science Festival Opening Night Gala Celebration in New York City. See articles in The Wall Street Journal, Scientific American and some photos at
  • A one-day exhibition of watercolor paintings by Loretta Swit was held on May 20th at the Celebrity Attic in Malibu, California. See this article at; apparently Swit once gave her cast mates paintings of themselves as gifts.
  • Here's an article in the National Post about Jamie Farr starring in Tuesdays with Morries.
Also, Gary Burghoff's 68th birthday was on May 24th.
