M*A*S*H Finale: Videos

I decided to post two more videos to go along with the other posts for the 29th anniversary of the M*A*S*H finale, “Goodbye, Farewell, and Amen.” The first video is not from the the final movie, but he final half-hour episode entitled “As Time Goes By.” The famous M*A*S*H finale was filmed before the fifteen episodes of season eleven. This meant the last day of filming was not the infamous goodbye scenes in Goodbye” Farewell and Amen,” but a scene in which the cast buries a time capsule. A fitting farewell. The set was croweded with press that day to capture the filming of the final scenes. This video is from that day:

The most famous scenes from “Goodbye, Farewell and Amen” are of the characters saying goodbye as they depart the 4077th. The most poignant scene is when Hawkeye leaves by helicopter and discovers the message BJ left for him. It was written to serve not only as a goodbye from BJ to Hawkeye, but also as the a goodbye to fans as well. Clearly it worked. The video below features the goodbyes by Col. Potter (it was made as a tribute to Harry Morgan who passed away December 7, 2011), but you can skip ahead to 2:32 to watch the final scene of the series:
