On the Fiddle (Operation Snafu) (Operation War Head) (1961)
Alfred Lynch and Sean Connery star as a pair of klutzy RAF members, during World War II, who are more interested in running petty confidence scams that toting rifles.

Audience Reviews for On the Fiddle (Operation Snafu) (Operation War Head)
A pre-Bond Connery plays a bit of a simpleton is this quirky British comedy. It's more a series of sketches rather than a complete film with Lynch (the main character) and Connery involved in a series of cons during WW2. They make a great double act and they're supported by some great British comedy talent. The film takes an uneasy turn to the dramatic towards the end but up till then it's an enjoyable (although slight) comedy.More
