The Great Escape is a 1963 American epic adventure suspense war film starring Steve McQueen, James Garner and Richard Attenborough and featuring James Donald, Charles Bronson, Donald Pleasence, James Coburn, Hannes Messemer, David McCallum, Gordon Jackson, John Leyton and Angus Lennie. It was filmed in Panavision.

The film is based on Paul Brickhill’s 1950 non-fiction book of the same name, a firsthand account of the mass escape by British Commonwealth prisoners of war from German POW camp Stalag Luft III in Sagan (now Żagań, Poland), in the Nazi Germany province of Lower Silesia. The film depicts a heavily fictionalized version of the escape, with numerous compromises for its commercial appeal, such as focusing more on American involvement in the escape.

In late 1942, having expended enormous resources on recapturing escaped Allied POWs, the Nazi German armed forces move the most determined to Stalag Luft III, a new, high-security prisoner-of-war camp supervised by Luftwaffe Colonel von Luger. The prisoners’ escape committee, the “X” Organization, led by RAF Squadron Leader Roger Bartlett, “Big X”, a former prisoner of the Gestapo, and with the approval of senior British officer Group Captain Ramsey, ‘The SBO’, mount an audacious plan to tunnel out of the camp and break out 250 men, not just to escape, but so that as many troops and resources as possible will be wasted on finding POWs. The men organize into teams, simultaneously working on three tunnels – named “Tom”, “Dick”, and “Harry”.

American Flight Lieutenant Bob Hendley is “the scrounger” and blackmailer, who finds anything from a camera to identity cards. Australian Flying Officer Sedgwick, “the manufacturer”, makes tools like picks and bellows for pumping air into the tunnels. Flight Lieutenants Danny Velinski and William “Willie” Dickes are “the tunnel kings” in charge of digging. Flight Lieutenant Andy MacDonald, Bartlett’s second-in-command, gathers and provides intelligence. Lieutenant Commander Eric Ashley-Pitt of the Royal Navy devises a method of dispersing soil from the tunnels under the guards’ noses. Flight Lieutenant Griffith is “the tailor”, creating civilian outfits from scavenged cloth. Forgery is handled by Flight Lieutenant Colin Blythe, “the forger”. The work noise is covered by the prisoner choir led by Flight Lieutenant Dennis Cavendish, “the surveyor”.

In June 1943, Bartlett asks USAAF Captain Virgil Hilts, ‘The Cooler King’, who is attempting an escape of his own with Scottish RAF Flying Officer Archibald “Archie” Ives, ‘The Mole’, but both are constantly imprisoned in isolation in the “cooler” (solitary confinement block[8]), to help in the escape, by getting out through the barbed wire, scouting the area immediately surrounding the camp and allow himself to be recaptured; Hilts refuses, though he does aid in the digging. Soon, Bartlett orders “Dick” and “Harry” sealed off, as “Tom” is closest to completion. After hoarding potatoes, Hilts, Hendley and Goff, the only other American in the camp, concoct moonshine from a homemade still and celebrate the Fourth of July with the entire camp.

While the men celebrate, the guards discover “Tom”. As the mood turns sour at the discovery, a despondent Ives frantically climbs the barbed wire fence and is shot dead. The prisoners switch their efforts to “Harry”, and Hilts agrees to provide reconnaissance from outside the camp. The information he brings back is used to create maps to guide the escapees. Willie discovers Danny intent on breaking out through the fence and Danny reveals he is claustrophobic and unable to return to the tunnel. After Willie promises his support, Danny agrees to try the tunnel again. Blythe discovers that he is going blind due to progressive myopia;[9] Hendley takes it upon himself to be Blythe’s guide in the escape. The last part of the tunnel is completed on the scheduled night, March 24, 1944, and despite mishaps, such as proving to be 20 feet (6 m) short of the woods due to faulty surveying, seventy-six prisoners get away, aided by an air-raid blackout. The escape is discovered when Griffith impatiently exits the tunnel in view of a guard.

All 76 POWs flee through various parts of the Third Reich, but only 3 successfully escape to freedom; Danny and Willie steal a rowboat and proceed downstream to a port, where they board a Swedish merchant ship. Sedgwick steals a bicycle, then rides hidden on a train to France, where French Resistance members befriend him and assist him in reaching Spain. The remaining 73 are recaptured; Cavendish hitchhikes in a truck but is delivered to the authorities. Hendley and Blythe steal a plane to fly over the Swiss border, but the engine fails, and they crash-land. Blythe is shot and mortally wounded and Hendley is recaptured.

Hilts steals a motorcycle at a crossroads, jumping a series of barbed-wire fences at the German-Swiss border to escape from German soldiers; he jumps the speeding cycle over the first fence before soldiers shoot out the bike’s tire, sending him sliding into the wire of the second fence where he is recaptured. Ashley-Pitt is killed at a railway station, and MacDonald and Bartlett are recaptured. The Gestapo murder 48 of the prisoners, including Bartlett, MacDonald and Cavendish, on the pretense that they were trying to escape, bringing the total killed to 50 men.
