Jeff & Ryan welcome Brian Rooney to MASH Matters. Brian is the volunteer project manager who oversees the original M*A*S*H outdoor filming site at Malibu Creek State Park. We discuss Brian’s mission to rejuvenate the set, everything you need to know before you visit, and how to create a perfect replica of the iconic 4077th signpost. Plus, you’ll learn how many people visit the site every week, the names of other well-known motion pictures shot at the park, and the story behind Robert Altman’s decision to film in Malibu instead of Korea. Put on your hiking boots and join us for a trip to the former Fox Ranch!
