Watch The Great Escape film. A film “The Great Escape” director by John Sturges. This is a great movie which much more historically accurate than it is often given credit for. In the years after,I probably have seen it a “million” times,owning it on VHS and DVD,and still watching,whenever it is broadcast,in the original language. Based largely on real events, this film has assumed classic status over the years and its easy to understand why. Quite simply, it excells in many departments. Director John Sturges was at the height of his creative powers and he keeps a firm grip on the proceedings. The Great Escape contains one of the most famous movie scenes of all times when McQueen has half of the German army chasing after him while riding his motorcycle trying to jump the barb wire fence to get to Switzerland. Andy McDonald (Gordon Jackson ) is ‘Intelligence,’ the officer who develops a fantastic security system to protect the compounds from the German “Ferrets.” Wonderful build-up, great middle, and a terrific ending. This film is classic. The Great Escape is one of those films you can watch dozens of times and never tire of. It’s a wonderful film, a real tribute to the best in mankind under some of the worst circumstances. Watch free full The Great Escape film online.
