Who played kilinger on tv series mash?
In the CBS television series M*A*S*H (1972-83) Cpl Max Klinger of Toledo, Ohio, is played by the actor Jamie Farr who is also from Toledo, Ohio. Max Klinger was the first character introduced into the series that was not part of the book or movie. He was involved in the spin-off, After MASH.
MASH, the book, movie and television series, is certainly not a fraud. They are based on real life (fictionalized) events of the first Korean MASH unit (July 1950). The book is written by Robert Hooker, and actual surgeon from MASH 8055. The story lines of the first several years of the CBS television series were taken from memories by actual former army personnel assigned to MASH units.
Gary Burghoff Burghoff also palyed Radar in the movie M*A*S*H, which makes him the only actor from the movie to actually get to keep his part in the series. (N.B. on the last point - G. Wood, who played Brigadier General Hammond in the movie also reprised his role for the TV series - but in only three episodes)
