I remember that scene in Ice Cold in Alex when they use the starting handle to crawl the truck up a massive sand dune.

That reminded me. When we moved house about 30 years ago, I had my Austin Seven. I was not in a position to start the Austin engine. I used the starting handle idea to run the car up scaffold planks into a van.

Official Land Rover advice if stuck in mud was to select reverse 4wd, remove spark plugs and use starting handle to back out.
