The Great Escape Blu-Ray release:  Legendary Hollywood actor Steve McQueen would have turned 83-years-old this year so it’s good timing that Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment have put together a splendid 50th Anniversary release of McQueen’s THE GREAT ESCAPE on Blu-ray for the first time. Directed by Academy Award® nominee John Sturges,* catch one of AFI’s “100 Most Thrilling American Films” in an all-new masterful 4K transfer. Available NOW. Order by clicking right HERE.
Based on a true story, THE GREAT ESCAPE is “a motion picture that entertains, captivates, thrills and stirs” (Variety). In 1943, the Germans opened a maximum security prison-of-war camp, designed to hold even the craftiest escape artists. By doing so, they unwittingly assembled the finest escape team in military history – brilliantly portrayed by Steve McQueen, James Garner, Charles Bronson, and James Coburn- who worked on what became the largest prison breakout ever attempted. The Blu-ray comes fully loaded with over three hours of special features including commentary with Director Sturges and crew, multiple making of featurettes, the original theatrical trailer and more.
