Product description

Product Description

How I Won the War (DVD + Blu-ray)
Directed by Jack Clayton

Hapless British commander Lieutenant Goodbody (Michael Crawford) enthusiastically leads his troops on a series of debacles on the battlefields of World War Two - including the calamitous installation of a cricket pitch behind enemy lines...

Featuring John Lennon in his only non-musical screen performance, How I Won the War is a biting satire not just on war, but also the concept of the war movie. A surreal farce fantastically brought to life by Richard Lester's stylised direction, it remains a unique and innovative cult comedy, which is presented here on Blu-ray for the very first time in the UK.

Special Features:

  • Original theatrical trailer
  • **FIRST PRESSING ONLY** Fully illustrated booklet with new writing on the film and full film credits
