On this episode, the Retro Movie Geek crew is joined by Tyson Hanks (check out more from Tyson here), and are geeking out over The Great Escape (1963) and

  • movie vs. reality
  • the ensemble cast
  • watching the classics
  • how good the movie is
  • and much, much more!


Superbly photographed on location in Germany, The Great Escape recounts the true story of 76 Allied airmen who plot a massive escape from Stalag 3, a notorious maximum security prison.

Steve McQueen, James Garner, and Richard Attenborough star as three of the prisoners of war who struggle against overwhelming odds to obtain freedom. The incredible mastermind and relentless effort behind The Great Escape makes this a compelling blockbuster, with a powerful and electrifying conclusion.
