The Great Escape - 75th Anniversary

PG cinema age rating  

Dan Snow presents a gala event on the 75th anniversary of the events dramatised in The Great Escape. The live event is followed by a 4K screening of The Great Escape. John Sturges' dramatisation of the true story of a group of British, American and Canadian POWs who successfully escaped from Stalag Luft III in Upper Silesia in March 1944 is arguably the best World War II adventure film ever made.

Full film details

A host of big-name stars meshes beautifully in this meticulous recreation of the legendary escape. Although this is a film about courage, Sturges wisely takes a low-key approach, leavened with humour, rather than allowing the cast to indulge in macho antics.
