Description by OLDIES.com:

The Dirty Dozen...amateurs! Inglourious Basterds...wimps! Meet the fearless foursome who first made the Fatherland cry uncle: the Invasion Quartet! While recuperating at an English military hospital, two gung-ho officers enlist a reluctant lieutenant and a stiff upper-lipped colonel into joining them on a raid into Nazi-occupied France where they intend to silence the gigantic gun that's been shelling the coastline, disrupting their cricket game and upsetting the local livestock. A wild and wacky send-up of The Guns of Navarone, this heilarious World War II spoof stars British comedy legend Spike Milligan, Bill Travers, John Le Mesurier and Gregoire Aslan as the zany commandoes who taught the German army that Reich was jolly well wrong.

Product Description:

It's probably no surprise that INVASION QUARTET has four leading actors; what might be surprising, especially to the unwary war-film fan, is that film is a comedy. British funster Spike Milligan joins the sobersided Bill Travers, John LeMesurier and Gregoire Aslan; the foursome are undercover agents, travelling by train behind Nazi lines. It's all part of a plan to disarm a huge German gun that is aimed at the port of Dover. Just so the audience knows it's supposed to be laughing, the creators of INVASION QUARTET pile joke upon joke by having the Nazis portrayed as bumbling buffoons. What works for HOGAN'S HEROES does not necessarily add to the effectiveness of INVASION QUARTET.
