Scroll down past hero image

Director: John Sturges

Cast: Steve McQueen, James Garner, Charles Bronson, James Coburn

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 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, screenwriters James Clavell and W.R. Burnett and composer Elmer Bernstein.
