Catch is a American black comedy war film adapted from the novel of the same name by Joseph Heller. In creating a black comedy revolving around the "lunatic characters" of Heller's satirical anti-war novel set at a fictional Mediterranean base during World War IIdirector Mike Nichols and screenwriter Buck Henry also in the cast worked on the film script for two years, converting Heller's complex novel to the medium of film.
Captain John Yossariana U. Along Break Ya Ankles - Various - Urban Black Pearls Vol. 15 his squadron members, Yossarian is committed to flying dangerous missions, but after watching friends die, he seeks a means of escape. Futilely appealing to his commanding officer, Colonel Cathcartwho continually increases the number of missions required to rotate home before anyone can reach it, Yossarian learns that even a mental breakdown is no General Hospital - Alcatrazz - No Parole From Rock N Roll when Doc Daneekaexplains the "Catch" the Army Air Corps employs.
While most crews are rotated out after twenty-five, the minimum number of missions for this base is eventually raised to an unobtainable eighty missions; a figure resulting from Colonel Cathcart's craving for publicity. Compliance with this insane number invokes regulation 22 for which, as explained by Doc Daneekathere is a catch: An airman would have to be crazy to fly more missions, and if he were crazy he would be unfit to fly. Yet, if an airman would refuse to fly more missions, this would indicate that he is sane, which would mean that he The Fish (Shindleria Praematurus) - Yes - Fragile be fit to fly the missions.
Another strange "catch" in the movie involves Major Majorwho had recently been promoted by Brigadier General DreedleCatch 22 - Deidream - A.M. didn't like Pegasus - Olivia Newton-John - Gaia look of the name "Capt.
Major" on the roll call. Major was promoted to Major Major and put in charge of a squadron, very much against his will. Major didn't want to be bothered, so he told First Sgt.

, but Major wouldn't be there. Trapped by this convoluted logic, Yossarian watches as individuals in the squadron resort to unusual means to cope; Lt. Milo Minderbinder concocts elaborate black market schemes while crazed Captain "Aarfy" Aardvark commits murder to silence a girl he raped. Lieutenant Nately falls for a prostitute, Major Danby delivers goofy pep talks before every bomb run and Captain Orr keeps crashing at sea. Meanwhile, Nurse Duckett occasionally beds Yossarian.
Nately dies as a result of an agreement between Milo and the Germans, trading surplus cotton in exchange for the squadron bombing its own base. While on a pass, Yossarian shares this news with Captain Nately's Whorewho then Catch 22 - Deidream - A.M.
to kill him. Because of Yossarian's constant complaints, Colonel Cathcart and Lt. Colonel Korn eventually agree to send him home, promising him a promotion to Major and the awarding him a medal for the fictitious saving of Cathcart's life; the only requirement being that Yossarian agrees to "like" the Colonels and praise them when he gets home.
Immediately after agreeing to Cathcart's and Korn's plan, Yossarian survives an attempt on his life when stabbed by Nately's Whorewho had disguised herself as an airman. Once recovered, Yossarian learns from the Chaplain and Major Danby that Captain Orr's supposed death was a hoax and that Orr's repeated 'crash' landings had been a subterfuge for practicing and planning his own escape from the madness. Yossarian is informed that after his last ditching Orr had paddled a rescue raft all the way to Sweden.
Yossarian decides to ditch the deal with Cathcart, leaps out of the hospital window, takes a raft from a damaged plane and, while a marching band practices for the ceremony to award Yossarian the promotion and medal, he hops into the sea, climbs into the raft and starts paddling.
The adaptation changed the book's plot. Several story arcs are left out, and many characters in the movie speak dialogue and experience events of other characters in the book. The pacing of the novel Catch is frenetic, its tenor intellectual, and its tone largely absurdist interspersed with brief moments of gritty, almost horrific, realism.
The novel did not follow a normal chronological progression; rather, it was told as a series of different and often seemingly, until later unrelated events, most from the point of view of the central character Yossarian. The film simplified the plot to largely follow events in chronological order, with only one event shown in Yossarian's flashbacks.
Catch is renowned for its role in saving the B Mitchell aircraft from possible extinction. The wreck was then buried in the ground by the runway, where it remains. Many of the "Tallmantz Air Force fleet" went on to careers in films and television, before being sold as surplus.
Catch was not regarded as a great success with the contemporary public or critics, earning less money and critical acclaim than the film Catch 22 - Deidream - A.M. of MASHanother war-themed black comedy released earlier the same year. In Pale Fire - Play Dead - The Singles ~ 1982~85, the film appeared as Americans were becoming more resentful of the bitter and ugly experience of the Vietnam War, leading to a general decline in the interest of war pictures, with the notable exceptions of MASH and Patton.
The site's consensus reads: " Catch takes entertainingly chaotic aim at the insanity of armed combat, supported by a terrific cast and smart, funny work from Buck Henry and Mike Nichols".
There have been other films with "Catch" in their names, including the documentary Catch and the short films Catch The New Contract and Catch22but they have been unrelated to either the book or film adaptation.
