The Great Escape

Another terrific cast, led by Steve McQueen, The Great Escape is usually considered the best escape movie ever made. (Good thing: you don’t call your movie The Great Escape unless you mean it.) Concerning a mass escape attempt from a supposedly “escape-proof” German POW camp, it won only one Oscar (Best Editing) when it was released in 1963, but is currently listed among the top 100 of IMDb’s “Top 250? list.
