Running nurses

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.

Running nurses

Post by Brass Monkeys » Fri Mar 29, 2019 8:08 pm

I recently learned who the five 'running nurses' from the opening credits are. I find it so sad to learn that one of them is dead, and the others are close to, if not, in their seventies. They were beautiful and athletic young ladies when it was filmed. I wish we could all be the same age as we were in reruns

I sometimes feel the same way when I watch a TV show from the 1950s/1960s/1970s and realize how much time has passed.

I guess Iv`e always been a little morbid about the passing of time. When I see the videos of people at the outdoor set, and seeing where all of the tents used to be,and knowing that all of the laughter, and sometimes tears , that were filmed here will never happen again, is quite sad. I know there are new shows and memories to be made, but none of the memories, in my mind, will be as good as MASH memories.

I guess I missed the hey day of this sight. I thought there would be more back and forth conversations. Last try! Does anyone know who said, and what was the whole line, that included my user name " Brass Monkeys"? I have more clues if needed!

Oops! I forgot to say "brass monkeys" is from a MASH episode.
