Based on a true story, The Great Escape is "a motion picture that entertains, captivates, thrills and stirs" (Variety). In 1943, the Germans opened a maximum security prison-of-war camp, designed to hold even the craftiest escape artists. By doing so, they unwittingly assembled the finest escape team in military history - brilliantly portrayed by Steve McQueen, James Garner, Charles Bronson, and James Coburn - who worked on what became the largest prison breakout ever attempted. The Blu-ray comes fully loaded with over three hours of special features including commentary with Director John Sturges and crew, multiple making of featurettes, the original theatrical trailer and more.

Special Features:

The Great Escape was released July 4th, 1963 and stars Steve McQueen, James Garner, Richard Attenborough, James Donald, Charles Bronson, Donald Pleasence, James Coburn, Hannes Messemer. The film is directed by John Sturges.

    If I have seen this at all, it was when I was too young to appreciate it. You should probably give it to someone who needs to see it.
