Operation Dumbo Drop | 1995
A comic battle of wills and an outrageous test of endurance ensues when five Green Berets stationed in Vietnam in 1968, grudgingly undertake the mission of a lifetime--to secretly transport an 8,000 lb. elephant through 200 miles of rough jungle terrain. Chaos and calamity prevail when Captain Sam Cahill makes a promise to the Montagnard villagers of Dak Nhe, to replace their prized elephant in time for an upcoming ceremonial ritual. To Sam, it's a matter of honor to help these people who have supported the American's efforts. But to Captain T.C. Doyle, a tough-nosed West Point officer sent to take over Cahill's command, the mission is nothing more than a jumbo-sized headache.
