Hannibal Brooks (Oliver Reed) is a British prisoner of war assigned to care for an elephant in a zoo in Munich. When the zoo is bombed by the Americans, Brooks is ordered to transport the elephant to a safer zoo in Innsbruck. En route to Innsbruck, Brooks accidentally kills the Nazi member of the escort (Peter Carsten) and then sets off with an American (Michael J. Pollard) and an Austrian (Helmuth Lohner). The trio escapes with the elephant and head for the Swiss border and freedom.

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", "Region free", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
