This based-on-fact WWII story remains a favorite for moviegoers: escape attempt-prone POWs are transferred to a maximum security camp, but nevertheless thwart the Nazis with a daring mass breakout. Following the success of The Magnificent Seven, John Sturges reconvened top collaborators including composer Elmer Bernstein; editor Ferris Webster; and core cast members Bronson, James Coburn, and McQueen—who took one of his most iconic roles and ran (and rode a motorcycle) with it.
