The Great Escape - Synopsis
"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. Together, under the guidance of the brilliant Bartlett (Richard Attenborough), the resourceful Hendley (James Garner) and the steely, determined Hilts (Steve McQueen), the men plot, scheme and dig their way to freedom... at any cost!"
First off, if you haven't seen the 1963 classic "The Great Escape", just stop reading this review and order it, even if this product was bare bones (which thankfully isn't the case) it would be a great value on the merits of the film alone. The Great Escape truly is one of the finest WWII films ever made on the subject.
Now onto the extras, the DVD is loaded with all sorts of documentaries and featurettes as well as a director's commentary (Which is rare on films from this era)
If you own it on VHS, UPGRADE, if you don't? Go OUT AND ORDER IT! Now I'm just sitting here and waiting for the 50th Anniversary bluray to get released.
