In 1943, the Germans opened Stalag Luft North, 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 "entertains, captivates, thrills and stirs" (Variety).
