MacArthur

We prefer Henry Morgan’s pre-colonel portrayal of General MacArthur in M*A*S*H to be honest, since he plays him as a complete loon – which he undoubtedly was – but as long as we’re here…Pretty standard stuff as far as this sort of thing goes, focusing much on the General’s time running Japan and stuffed with the kind of American actor you only get to see in this kind of film, like Dan O’Herlihy and Ward Costello.

    Err, Dan O’Herlihy wax from Wexford, and split his time between US, Ireland and UK.
    Apparently, a massive fan of Billy Bunter and the Magnet.
    Also the man who named Irish showbiz perennial Adele “Twink” King.
    Begins in Australia, which for a 70s budget-saving UIniversal backlot-bound production, actually looks quite convincing, if slightly overdoing the Briticisms.
