    Does anybody remember the Film that Oliver Reed starred in when he took an Elephant over the mountains to Switzerland? It was I think it was set in WW11.

    THanks for the title and also the clip.What a good looking guy Ollie was when he was younger!

    It must be a long time since this film was last on TV and I agree it should be available on DVD like multitude of sixties British films preferably remastered.

    First run at London Pavilion, Piccadilly Circus 13 March-9 April,1969



    General Release 30 March 1969 (starting North London Odeons-and other important theatres!!) teamed with the Peter Sellers B-movie "The Party". Did that have an elephant in too, i wonder?



    Genuine 1960's British adverts to follow next week if anyone is interested.

    He certainly was - and with a screen presence rarely found in today's actors.



    Here he is in Ken Russell's Dante's Inferno (1967)
