This high-octane flick is one of the best - and most macho - war films ever made. Based on the true story of 250 Second World War prisoners who tried to escape from a German PoW camp, The Great Escape will have you glued to the screen. James Garner, Richard Attenborough, Charles Bronson, Donald Pleasence, James Coburn, David McCallum and Steve McQueen star as the motley group of prisoners who form an elaborate plan to fool the guards while digging a massive series of tunnels beneath and out of the camp. McQueen is extraordinary as "The Cooler King," the prisoner who will never stop trying to escape and whose spirit will never break.
