Format: Paperback
If you're a M*A*S*H fan--or just have one in your life--you'll want to go to the extra trouble of trying to find this out-of-print volume. It's a photo-journal of the last week of filming M*A*S*H, with all the pictures provided by Alan Alda's talented wife. She had unusual access to a very closed set and was therefore able to capture a lot of raw emotion. Her photos, combined with her husband's often poignant commentary, do much to convey a sense of what was happening to the group of players that had called the 4077th their home. Perhaps because the initial profits went to charity--though probably because it was genuinely there--a real sense of love permeates this work. THE LAST DAYS OF M*A*S*H was no attempt to capitalize on the hysteria surrounding the end of the series, but an authentic documentary effort.

At what went on behind the scenes of M*A*S*H, particularly during the final week or so of filming. I found this book at the Boston Public Library and, as it was in the reserved books section, read it in less than an hour. And I'm glad I did--I learned more about both M*A*S*H and the show's actors than I could have without interviewing them myself. Arlene Alda did a superb job with the photography, and Alan Alda's commentary is not only insightful, but also makes me wish I was old enough then (I was two in 1983) to appreciate the show, and lets me appreciate it--and the hard work of everyone involved--even more now.

Delightful, great photos and a MUST have for all MASH junkies. Alan Alada has just come out with his own autobiography, so this may be harder to find.

Ive been a M*A*S*H fan for the last 8 years. This book tells the untold story of the last few days on the set of M*A*S*H. It's a fantastic book. I really like it!

A little-known fact: that Mrs. Alan Alda, is a photographer with credits in most major magazines, and has compiled a delightful collection for this book.
It includes seldom-seen articles, telegrams and creative pages that are unlike anything I've seen amassed in a book of this type. Because it is part of
a research project for me, I found valuable insights included, but it's just fun and fabulous to have in a collection for no real reason, except that it is.
