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.

North by Northwest - made in 1959, The Magnificent Seven - 1960,Doctor no - 1962, in fact,any of the Connery Bond films, all look superb on blu ray.So i waited with baited breath,really looking forward to the Great Escape blu ray treatment (as its one of my favouritre films,from child to adult). To be honest, i was slightly disappointed.Yes,compared to the normal DVD, its way better.fills the whole screen as well.But its not perfect.Slightly 'fluffy',nowhere near the perfect clarity and sharpness of,say,Connery Bond films, so it cant be argued that a film of a certain age cant be transferred perfectly.Still, happy enough with this, just initial slight disappointment.
