Synopsis

In 1943, the Germans opened Stalag Luft III, a maximum-security prisoner-of-war camp designed to hold even the craftiest escape artists. In doing so, however, the Nazis unwittingly assembled the finest escape team in military history — brilliantly portrayed here by Steve McQueen, James Garner, Charles Bronson and James Coburn — who worked on what became the largest prison breakout ever attempted.

One of the most ingenious and suspenseful adventure films of all time, The Great Escape is a masterful collaboration between director John Sturges (The Magnificent Seven), screenwriters James Clavell (Shogun) and W.R. Burnett (Little Caesar ), and composer Elmer Bernstein. Based on a true story, The Great Escape is epic entertainment that “captivates, thrills and stirs” (Variety ).

Reviews

Dave Kehr Chicago Reader | March 01, 2007

Way too flabby at 168 minutes, but once this 1963 feature gets going it's good, solid stuff.
