Operation Snatch (1962) is a British comedy film starring Terry-Thomas and George Sanders and directed by Robert Day.

The story takes place in Gibraltar, and is based on a local legend: if the resident Barbary Apes were ever to leave, the British would lose Gibraltar. This wartime comedy has Terry-Thomas as the keeper of the apes. When one of the apes goes missing, he is required to go behind enemy lines to capture another one, or be personally responsible for the loss of Gibraltar.
