Which of the Magnificent Seven saved Frank Sinatra from drowning and was later cast in Sinatra films like Von Ryan's Express as a thank you?

Brad Dexter is in both films and I can't think of anyone else who is in both so I'll say him.

Everyone says that about Brad Dexter in the Seven but Horst Buchholz didn't ever set the world on fire either.

Anyway, my question....

What film, set at the same time as Von Ryan's Express and with some parallels in storyline, featured Aida in the central - but not title - role?

A film with a somewhat related plot to Von Ryan's Express was Hannibal Brooks which featured Oliver Reed and another pachyderm in the central roles. I recall the elephant being called Lucy in the film but was Aida perhaps the thick-skinned thesp's real-life moniker?

Lucy was indeed played by Aida and as with so many actors her career was irreparably damaged by appearing in a Michael Winner film.

All yours.

Thanks Abe.

In view of my previous question (on Norman Rossington) and yours (on Ollie Reed):

Which classic 1960's British film featured Norman Rossington as the uncredited Staff Sergeant Hall and Oliver Reed as a camp chorus boy?

(This will be solved in nanoseconds!)
