A surreal collage of battle footage and one-liners lampooning the absurdity of the war, the film co-stars Michael Crawford (A Funny Things Happened on the Way to the Forum) as an inept WWII commander leading his troops to series of zany misadventures.

Directed by the great Richard Lester (A Hard Day’s Night), the movie features beautiful cinematography by David Watkin (Chariots of Fire) and a stellar supporting cast that includes Roy Kinnear (Juggernaut), Lee Montague (Mahler), Jack MacGowran ( The Exorcist), Michael Hordern (Where Eagles Dare) and Alexander Knox (Crack in the World).
