Goofs

Black Tuesday, the beginning to the Great Depression, happened in 1929, not in the 1930s. One would expect Winchester to be aware of this, regardless of the fact that his family wasn't affected by the Crash. In addition, there were no confirmed reports of stockbrokers jumping out windows, merely rumors and anecdotes. See more »

The House Is Theirs!
3 May 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

A common plot in MASH is to try to celebrate something and keep the guest of honor out of his digs. Mildred Potter sends a letter to Hawkeye, saying that by saving her money, she has paid off the mortgage on the house. She asks Pierce to throw a mortgage burning party. Of course, nothing goes easy because they are trying to decorate Potter's quarters, requiring them to keep him away. He, on the other hand, becomes quite suspicious and believes Mildred has done something crazy with their money. In another story, a sniper has hit a young lieutenant in the spine. His men, loyal to him, decide if he can't walk again, they will kill the North Korean who shot him, in cold blood. The latter is actually a more interesting offering.
