Jane in the Desert
IMDb (1984) A very curious and enjoyable little "movie" made, I believe, from a BBC TV series. It seems to be the episodes of the second series of the TV show pasted together. It is a clever combination of live action and animation. The story takes place during the war and involves mission to Egypt to bring back a scientist with a secret formula. Needless to say, spies and enemy agents make the task difficult. Jane was a character from a 30s comic strip that was a big hit during the war. She had trouble keeping her clothes on and was quite popular with the troops. More information can be found here and at the Wikipedia here.
