Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

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 - brilliantly portrayed here by Steve McQueen, James Garner, Charles Bronson and James Coburn - 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 (The Magnificent Seven), screenwriters James Clavell (Shogun) and W.R. Burnett (Little Caesar), and composer Elmer Bernstein. Based on a true story, The Great Escape is epic entertainment that "captivates, thrills and stirs" (Variety).

The Great Escape - Limited Edition Steelbook

Absolutely stunning! Great film. The The Great Escape has a great steelbook cover design. Highly recommended.

Great Movie

The Great Escape - Limited Edition Steelbook is one of the best war movies of all time and one of my favourite movies.

Steelbook Blu-Ray

The steelbook artwork is excellent . The blu-ray PQ is average at best as no work has been done to re-master the print however the pq is better than the dvd. Sq is dts-hd 5.1 and is improved over the dvd. Special features have been ported over from the standard dvd.
