“I have a message. ‘Lieutenant Colonel… Henry Blake’s plane… was shot down… over the Sea of Japan… it spun in… there were no survivors.'” Very emotional moment. They don’t hardly make scenes like that anymore, it seems.
But that sign? Argh! My wife and I both groaned so loud that our neighbors three houses down could hear it.

I’ve read it was unscripted, the writers handed (Radar) a note and said “here, go read this.”

I read that no one knew about the ending until right before they began taping the last scene, in order to provoke genuine emotion from the cast. It obviously worked, as Loretta Swit, Larry Linville, and William Christopher were visibly upset (as was Gary Burghoff), but I don’t know how Alan Alda and Wayne Rogers were able to remain so stoic, though it did reflect their characters (do the job, keep your emotions in check, cry later).
Given what I’ve heard about the Police being anti-vaccine by close to 45%, I think we may need Radar to watch over our highways and byways. Not the worst idea I’ve heard today. And these days the bad ideas come in by Military cargo planes.
