Watch Hannibal Brooks - Alternative Versions.
I stumbled on this movie on a Sunday afternoon and, having nothing better to
do, sat down to watch. I wasn't expecting much--director Michael Winner
doesn't have the strongest reputation--but this was a very well-done film.
It has that 60s anti-establishment tone, though Oliver Reed's character is
more indifferent to war than an outright rebel. When he is captured, Reed's
character, Hannibal Brooks, volunteers to work at the Munich zoo and becomes
the caretaker for the zoo's elephant, Lucy. When the German caretaker is
killed in a bombing raid, Brooks is put in charge and directed to take the
elephant to safety in Ausria. What follows is a series of largely comic
misadventures, though the film does develop a serious tone as it goes on.
Unable to take the elephant by train, Brooks sets off on foot, accompanied
by two German guards and a female cook.
There is some great German scenery in the film as Brooks and company make
their way into the high country. Following the accidental death of one of
the guards, plans change and the remaining trio make their way to
Switzerland. There's a rogueish American escapee, played by Michael J.
Pollard, who keeps crossing paths with Brooks, as well as a German officer,
played by Wolfgang Preiss, whose path crosses Brooks' as well. Rather
reluctantly, Brooks becomes something of a hero, though he's motivated more
by his desire to keep Lucy safe than by anything else. A very enjoyable
movie that I wouldn't mind seeing again some time.
