'Operation Dumbo Drop' (1995)
Soldiers sneaking an elephant onto a helicopter? It definitely sounds like the plot of a fake movie, but the story is indeed authentic... and even involves two elephants. Danny Glover and Ray Liotta star in the Disney flick, which is based on the true story of former Green Beret John Scott Gantt. Gantt and his fellow officers delivered two Indian elephants, via a C-130 airplane, to the small town of Tra Bong in South Vietnam in order to help the mountain village prosper. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo: Disney)
