The Great Escape (1963)

Take every vintage tough guy from Coburn to Bronson, stick them in a German POW camp, and give them three hours to get out, and you get this one. Pretty good escape movie, though the Paul Brickhill book was better, and perhaps more engaging, if only because it didn’t have to labor under tossing big hunks of meat into a testosterone stew.
