The finale was directed by Alan Alda, who would also play the role of the show’s Hawkeye Pierce. He was a surgeon who was drafted into the 4077th MASH during the Korean War. The show primarily follows the lives of a multitude of different characters at a medical unit during the Korean War. The show focuses on two characters, in particular, Hawkeye Pierce and Trapper John McIntyre, who are a bunch of practical jokers as the war continues outside of their own little world.
