Goodbye, Hawkeye

Donald Sutherland, the prolific film and television actor whose long career stretched from “M.A.S.H.” to “The Hunger Games,” has died. He was 88.

Kiefer Sutherland, the actor’s son, confirmed his father’s death Thursday. No further details were immediately available.

“I personally think one of the most important actors in the history of film,” Kiefer Sutherland said on X. “Never daunted by a role, good, bad or ugly. He loved what he did and did what he loved, and one can never ask for more than that.

I could never stop thinking of him as the character he played in "The Dirty Dozen" that I took my wife to see when we were dating.

Yeah, all the time I was in the service, I kept waiting for a flag officer to do a version of this scene.

My father was a doc in a WWII Mash equivalent, African and Italian campaignsd. We took him to see the movie. He came out shaking his head, said, 'It was just like that, only crazier'. The unit got a redneck CO who was busting everyone's chops gratuitously (been up to 2AM putting soldiers back together, CO had them up at sunrise to do PT). So they did finger pushups....until the CO got up one morning and had a fecal seizure. Life was miserable until the SOB developed acute prostatitis...and could only get relief from regular finger waves. He hid in his tent after that.
