Plot: The true story of the largest, single, Allied POW escape attempt from a WWII Nazi prison camp came to the big screen as a rousing, all-star production that manages to be both true to the facts of the escape, and grand entertainment. It almost makes being a Nazi POW look like fun!! Features a stellar cast, a thrilling adventure, and a classic, Elmer Bernstein march that you won't be able to get out of your head for months! The inspiration for Nick Park and Peter Lord's Chicken Run!
