Bob Barry’s Unearthed Interviews Podcast: Jamie Farr

If you were television fan in the 70s and 80s you’ll remember the cross dressing corporal, later sergeant, from Toledo, Ohio bucking for a discharge while serving in the Korean War. Jamie Farr was Maxwell Klinger in the CBS television sitcom M*A*S*H. He actually served in the Korean War along with another cast member, Alan Alda. Jamie will detail how they filmed M*A*S*H and tell us about all of the women’s clothing he had to wear and the changes he had to make. One time he couldn’t get out of a dress and had to ask a burly set electrician to unzip it for him. Jamie said the guy is probably still wondering what that was all about. He even won a fashion show honor and has a funny story about modeling a wedding dress.
