Part of Richard Lester at 80

Black comedy punctuates Lester’s look at World War II, based on the novel of the same name by Patrick Ryan. Starring Michael Crawford as the inept British Army Lieutenant Earnest Goodbody and John Lennon as Musketeer Gripweed, How I Won the War follows the 4th Musketeers along their bumbling misadventures.
