Based on a true story, a group of allied escape-artist-type prisoners-of-war are all put in an “escape proof” camp. Their leader decides to try to take out several hundred all at once. The first half of the movie is played for comedy, as the prisoners mostly outwit their jailers to dig the escape tunnel. The second half is high adventure as they use planes, trains, and boats to get out of occupied Europe.
With an all-star cast this film is one of the true classics in the history of film-making.
PLEASE NOTE THAT BECAUSE THIS FILM HAS A RUNNING TIME OF 2 HOURS 45 MINUTES IT WILL START 15 MINUTES EARLIER AND END 30 MINUTES LATER THAN USUAL.
