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), Jack MacGowran (Musketeer Juniper), Roy Kinnear (Musketeer Clapper) and Lee Montague (Sergeant Transom) as soldiers under his command. The film uses an inconsistent variety of styles—vignette, straight–to–camera, and, extensively, parody of the war film genre, docu-drama, and popular war literature—to tell the story of 3rd Troop, the 4th Musketeers (a fictional regiment reminiscent of the Royal Fusiliers) and their misadventures in the Second World War. This is told in the comic

  • 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), Jack MacGowran (Musketeer Juniper), Roy Kinnear (Musketeer Clapper) and Lee Montague (Sergeant Transom) as soldiers under his command.

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 Tunisia, but it is all broadly based on the Allied landings in North Africa in 1942 to the crossing of the last intact bridge on the Rhine at Remagen in 1945. The film was not critically well received. (en)

Regie führte Richard Lester, das Drehbuch schrieb Charles Wood, basierend auf dem gleichnamigen Roman von Patrick Ryan aus dem Jahr 1963.

  • How I Won the War is een Britse film uit 1967 van Richard Lester met in de hoofdrollen Michael Crawford en John Lennon. De film is gebaseerd op de gelijknamige roman van Patrick Ryan uit 1963 en volgt de belevenissen tussen 1942-1945 van het fictieve 3e peloton van het 4e regiment Musketiers onder leiding van luitenant Goodbody. Hoewel de film gaat over een fictieve eenheid tijdens de Tweede Wereldoorlog wilde Lester eigenlijk een anti-oorlogsfilm maken gericht tegen de oorlog in Vietnam. De film is vooral bekend geworden doordat Beatle John Lennon de rol van soldaat Gripweed vertolkt. De critici waren niet erg enthousiast over de film, maar dankzij Lennon's aanwezigheid groeide "How I Won The War" toch uit tot een cultfilm. Desondanks beschouwde Universal, de distributiemaatschappij, de film als een artistiek succes en zette de samenwerking met regisseur Richard Lester voort. (nl)
  • How I Won the War (br.: Como ganhei a Guerra) é um filme de comédia de humor negro britânico de 1967, dirigido por Richard Lester para a Petersham Pictures com distribuição da United Artists. O roteiro de Charles Wood é baseado no livro homônimo de Patrick Ryan. A narrativa usa de forma inconsistente vários estilos como vinhetas, comentários direto para a câmara e paródia extensa sobre filmes de guerra, desde documentários até os baseados em literatura popular. Os soldados protagonistas são da 3ª Tropa, o 4º Mosqueteiros (regimento fictício remanescente dos Reais Fuzileiros) e são contadas as desventuras deles durante a Segunda Guerra Mundial, cuja missão inicial era construir um Campo de Críquete em Área Avançada, ou seja, atrás das linhas inimigas na Tunísia. Eles desembarcam na África do Norte em 1942 mas continuam e chegam até a última ponte intacta sobre o Rio Reno, a Ponte Ludendorff, até Remagen, em 1945. O filme nunca recebeu boas críticas. (pt)

Фильм примечателен тем, что в нём снялся Джон Леннон из знаменитой ливерпульской группы the Beatles. История поездки Джона Леннона на съёмки этого фильма в Альмерию легла в основу фильма испанского режиссёра Давида Труэбы «Легко живётся с закрытыми глазами». (ru)
