How I Won The War Original Movie Poster (framed) Approximately 34″ x 48″ Estate Sale Item “As is condition…” No Returns Super Size Photos To Inspect Condition And Any Imperfections How I Won the War is a black comedy film directed and produced by Richard Lester, released in 1967, based on a novel of the same name by Patrick Ryan. The film stars Michael Crawford as bungling British Army Officer Lieutenant Earnest Goodbody, with John Lennon (in his only non-musical role, as Musketeer Gripweed),This is told in the comic/absurdist vein throughout, a central plot being the setting-up of an “Advanced Area Cricket Pitch” behind enemy lines in North Africa, but it is all broadly based on the Western Desert Campaign in mid-late 1942[1] and the crossing of the last intact bridge on the Rhine at Remagen in early 1945. How I Won the War takes a cold, dark look at the Good War, World War II. In adapting Patrick Ryan’s 1963 novel, screenwriter Charles Wood and director Richard Lester offered a narrative fractured by characters making side comments to the camera, stylized cinematography, inserts of newsreel war footage, and plenty of absurdist humor and slapstick. Ernest Goodbody (Michael Crawford) is a bumbling British officer who manages to get most of his small company of musketeers killed while on a mission in North Africa to set up a cricket pitch behind enemy lines for officers of the advancing British army. (Original prints of the film intercut real battle footage tinted to match the color of the soon-to-be ghost soldier. Among the supporting players are John Lennon, who had worked with Lester on A Hard Day’s Night and Help
