Hannibal Brooks is a 1969 British war film about a Prisoner of war attempt to escape from Nazi Germany to Switzerland during World War II, accompanied by an Asian Elephant. It stars Oliver Reed, Michael J. Pollard and Wolfgang Preiss. It was directed by Michael Winner.


Stephen "Hannibal" Brooks (Oliver Reed) is a British Prisoner of war officer put to work in a Munich zoo, looking after an Asian elephant called Lucy. When the zoo is bombed by the Americans the zoo's director (Eric Jelde) determines it's unsafe for the elephant to remain there. So he sends Brooks along with hostile German soldier Kurt (Peter Carsten), a friendly German soldier named Willy (Helmut Lohner) and Vronia, a female cook to accompany the elephant to Innsbruck Zoo via train.

They are forced to walk when an SS commandeer (Wolfgang Preiss) told Brooks that the Elephant wasn't allowed on the train.
