The actress Loretta Swit — best known for her role as Major “Hotlips” Houlihan in the popular TV show M.A.S.H. — is in Missoula. She’s here for a screening of “Never The Same” — a film about American prisoners of Imperial Japan during World War II. The screening coincides with an exhibit at the Montana Museum of Art & Culture that features pieces by Montana artist Ben Steele.
