The film displays the setting of the 4077th MASH, located just three miles from
the front line in Uijeongbu, where the doctors and nurses perform "meatball
surgery" and otherwise do what they can to patch up the physical (and,
occasionally, psychological) wounds of the conflict's casualties while staving
off their own fear, stress, boredom and fatigue by fair means or foul.
Johnny Mandel's work on the soundtrack largely involved arranging period tunes
and effect music (especially military and football-related themes), although he
also wrote a memorable main title theme.
"Song from M*A*S*H (Suicide Is Painless)" is written by Johnny Mandel (music)
and Mike Altman (lyrics), which was the theme song for both the movie and TV
series M*A*S*H. Mike Altman is the son of the original film's director, Robert
Altman, and was 14 years old when he wrote the song's lyrics.
Several instrumental versions of the song were used as the theme for the TV
series. It became a number one hit in the UK Singles Chart in May 1980. The song
was ranked #66 on AFI's 100 Years...100 Songs
