Suicide is painless on BD

The original Altman film M*A*S*H will be making it’s 1080p debut thanks to Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

One of the world’s most acclaimed comedies, M*A*S*H focuses on three Korean War Army surgeons brilliantly brought to life by Donald Sutherland, Tom Skerritt and Elliott Gould. Though highly skilled and deeply dedicated, they adopt a hilarious, lunatic lifestyle as an antidote to the tragedies of their Mobile Army Surgical Hospital, and in the process infuriate Army bureaucrats. Robert Duvall, Gary Burghoff and Sally Kellerman co-star as a sanctimonious Major, an other-worldly corporal, and a self-righteous yet lusty nurse.

Since M*A*S*H was released at the same time as Patton and by the same company, it will be interesting to see if the same level of digital scrubbing will apply to this title. Expect the features from the DVD to make their way over to the new release.

The Blu-ray will arrive with DTS-HD on July 14th.
