Hannibal Brooks

Film, Drama

Time Out says

British PoW Brooks (Reed) is assigned to look after an elephant named Lucy, to whom he grows devoted. En route with the elephant from Munich to a safer zoo in Innsbruck, Brooks accidentally kills the Nazi member of the escort (Karsten) and then sets off with Lucy over the mountains to Switzerland. Pollard is tiresomely flaky as one 'Packy', leader of a private army, and Oliver Reed is not much more than Oliver Reed. Pretty good, though, for a Michael Winner ?lm.
