One of the all-time greats of suspenseful adventure films, The Great Escape is set during WWII in a German maximum security POW camp designed to hold even the most resourceful prisoners bent on escape.
Led by the 'Big X' (Richard Attenborough), the men formulate a plan for a mass breakout, digging three tunnels - Tom, Dick and Harry. The team behind the escape includes a near-blind forger of passports (Donald Pleasance), a claustrophobic tunnel-digger (Charles Bronson) and the independent American 'Cooler King' (Steve McQueen). With men like that on their side, how can they fail?
