When actors get fussy

Ken Levine recalls how he and co-writer David Isaacs kept the actors on MASH in line after receiving rather too many pernickety script notes.
The next time it occurred we went back to the room, addressed all of their minor concerns, and then made a one other little change of our own to the script. We made it a cold show.

The next day filming began at the Malibu ranch. Summer temperatures were routinely in the 90's and 100'’s. Now the cast was all in parkas standing over fire barrels delivering lines about how bitterly cold Korea was in the winter.
