Slipped disc | The MASH actor had a second life as a symphony conductor

K.D. Cooper He says:

I think we should give credit to “M * A * S * H” actor Larry Linville for being kind enough to leave the series when he felt he had done everything he could with his “MAJ Frank Burns” character, thus making way for David Ogden Stiers’ “MAJ Charles Emerson Winchester III” character.

He was often obnoxious, like MAJ Burns, but the episodes in which he privately showed humanity, namely, “Morale Victory”, in advising the soldier who lost the use of his fingers in his right hand due to chipped fragments that his musical career wasn’t really over; in “Sons and Bowlers”, where he provided emotional comfort to “Hawkeye” who deals with his father’s surgery; and in the episode in which he gave a stammering soldier his leather-bound edition of “Moby Dick”, telling him that he was much more worthy of a man with an above average intellect than the comics, those moments were pure gold of television .

David Ogden Stiers was definitely worthy of some of the best supporting actors in an Emmy comedy for his work on “M * A * S * H;” will certainly be remembered and very lost … the last tribute !!
