Reel Britannia

Apr 4, 2020

Welcome to Reel Britannia-a very British podcast about very British movies ...with just a hint of professionalism.

Episode 067 – How I Won The War (1967)

A warm welcome this week to our special guest, Antony Rotunno from the splendid Glass Onion – On John Lennon podcast. Antony joins Scott and Steven to chat about Richard Lester’s movie,  How I Won The War, starring Michael Crawford and featuring a certain member of The Fab Four.

Captured by German soldiers, British officer Ernest Goodbody (Michael Crawford) details his history as a commanding officer. While he describes himself as a noble and heroic officer, the truth is that he is a bumbling idiot whose own ineptitude and idiocy ends up costing the lives of most of his company. As his own men continue to drop like flies, their ghosts remain on the battlefield, marching along with their commanding officer even after death.

 “And I'm not a thief, really. I've never found anything worth keeping.”
