The first major film by Robert Altman, M*A*S*H, is having a revival this summer for the 40th anniversary of its premiere. It's well worth seeing. One of the first episodic, ensemble films, it is noted for its eclectic soundtrack and sound effects. Donald Sutherland, Elliott Gould, and Sally Kellerman star, back when they were unknowns. Also a good example of the wartime black comedy that became so popular.

While Donald Sutherland and Elliott Gould are still busily working, Sally Kellerman seems to have gone back to being an unknown.  :-\

That's because she's not young anymore.  >:(

And I always found the movie MASH very misogynistic, what with what they did to Houlihan and why and how they treated nurses who weren't currently having sex with them.

Speaking of misogynistic, I saw The Social Network yesterday. Only one seemingly intelligent woman in it...played by our friend Rooney Mara!

But that's not a show from our past. So, to stay on topic, I settled down to enjoy a Sherlock Holmes segment on PBS last Sunday. To my delight, the damsel in distress was played by the lovely and eloquent Jenny Seagrove, none other than Marina from, you guessed it, Local Hero!!

And how did I know that somehow your post would be about Local Hero?  ;D

Then she must have been Mary Morstan, the future Mrs. John Watson.

Movies from the past, huh?

Well, it's October now, which means many many reruns of horror movies of the past.

;D
