Hannibal Brooks

Odd WWII comedy from the pens of Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais, by way of early (i.e. any good) Michael Winner, with Ollie Ginandorange as a bolshy zoo keeping PoW who takes an elephant off to Innsbruck when the zoo is bombed. Slightly jarring mix of Clement-La Frenais down-to-Earth banter and bombs-landscapes-elephant spectacle, plus John Alderton.
