"I haven't seen Berlin yet, from the ground or from the air, and I plan on doing both before the war is over."

You'll laugh, you'll cry, this movie will stick with you. What more can be said about a classic movie?
The Great Escape is funny and serious in good proportion. It has definitely aged well, being just as interesting, entertaining and relevant to modern audiences as it was the year it was released. I firmly believe that everyone should see this movie. Everyone.

" Notes: Well, it is such a solid and entertaining WWII feature. First of all, the cast was pretty neat (Steve McQueen, James Garner, Richard Attenborough, Charles Bronson, Donald Pleasence, James Coburn) and they all delivered some solid performances, especially Steve McQueen who was at the top of his game at the time.
