The Great Escape

Recommended Posts

Not wishing to detract in any way from the historical and human significance of this anniversary, but it is an interesting coincidence that Steve McQueen would have been 84 on this very same day!

It's a great film..... when taken only as a slice of Hollywood entertainment.......

..and that's about it really .

In reality... it should certainly shoulder a lot of the blame for the idiotic belief that being in a POW camp was something akin to staying in a 'teenage boys summer adventure camp' ....

.......... the truth unfortunately was despairingly and very cruelly, very different.:-|

but!.....as I said ... a great piece of entertainment ..........especially on Boxing Day :D
