(on the movie M*A*S*H)
Rene Auberjonois: The studio wasn't really paying much attention to the film and it turned out quite different from the original screenplay by Ring Lardner and very much removed from the book. Before it was released there was a screening for the critics in New York and when Pauline Kael, the most important critic in the country at the time, was asked what should be done with the movie, she said 'Are you nuts? Release it!' It became a huge hit.
