The Great Escape (1963)

 Truth? This is rated R for ear-bleedy swears.

Great Escape 3

Steve McQueen is the main attraction in the 22nd N100P podcast (although some of us prefer James Garner). This John Sturges P.O.W. flick features an ensemble cast of talented white dudes, including the rich old man from Jurassic Park and the obsessed shrink in the Halloween series. But as for The Great Escape, it’s pretty exciting stuff! To hear a lot more, dial up Sparkplug Coffee and then do that listening thing.

For The Record: Steve McQueen’s last 2 movies before a four-year break were actually Papillon and The Towering Inferno (not The Getaway).
