Whimsy gets a workout in this light war movie about Green Berets transporting an elephant through Vietnam to replace a village’s sacred animal killed by the Vietcong. Operation Dumbo Drop was reportedly inspired by a true story, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t hokey. The comical adventures mostly involve packing the pachyderm into various vehicles (truck, boat, cargo plane) and dodging occasional enemy fire — not enough action for the big screen, but plenty for video. Still, near the end the film goes overboard, with daredevil heroics that would seem unbelievable for James Bond.
