Hannibal Brooks. 1969.

A British P.O.W in Germany escorts a elephant called Lucy over the Swiss Alps to a new zoo.

You got something different from a director who went on to make violent films Michael Winner and hard nut pub brawling fighter Oliver Reed as the lead actor. What may start as a drama then turns to comedy with Michael J. Pollard who tries in vein to escape at any possible chance even in a gymnastic horse equipment. The cinematography is great in this and captures the scenery of the trek perfectly.
