The Great Escape
A marvelous international cast star in this true story about the remarkable escape of 76 (out of an intended 250) Allied POWs from the Nazi detention camp, Stalag Luft North, and their attempt to flee Gestapo-occupied territory during WWII. Suits are to be made, rations assembled, maps and compasses manufactured. And above all, three tunnels, each 30 feet deep and 350 feet long, are to be dug! All to foil sensitive electronic detecting devices...and human and canine eyes and ears. Some will make it all the way. Others may not...Based on the book by Paul Brickhill.
