A wild, free-flowing comedy, M*A*S*H has joining it two unpredictable madcaps, Hawkeye and Duke. They can't be dealt with casually, however, because they are also two of the best surgeons in South Korea. They wage a campaign to get a young S. Korean entered in a good school in the US. The thread of this effort helps tie together the pileup of comic adventures that pyramid before the eyes the audience. There's an encounter with the baby-talking Bonwit sisters, the worst tap-dancing act of the U.S.O. ever . A sergeant is selling dumb GIs fishing rights in the Bay of Phum.   Radar O'Reilly, a soldier with incredible hearing, anticipates things before they happen. The proprietor of a painless dental clinic is cured of dark moods by the recreation of an old monster movie. It's all here -- a little romance mixed in with dramatic moments and a genuine love of life.
