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, screenwriters James Clavell and W.R. Burnett and composer Elmer Bernstein. Based on a true story, The Great Escape is epic entertainment that “captivates thrills and stirs” (Variety).
