Trivia

Ian McShane's character, Roger Bushell, was the real-life inspiration for Roger Bartlett (Richard Attenborough) in The Great Escape (1963). This same year, McShane appeared in War and Remembrance (1988) with Karl-Otto Alberty, who had appeared in the original Great Escape film. Also appearing in War and Remembrance was Jane Seymour, who was previously married to Attenborough's son. She was preceded in her role by Ali MacGraw, who was previously married to Steve McQueen.

I only saw this silly made-for-TV sequel in it's chopped-down 93-minute video version, and it was quite obvious that there were many things missing. On the plus side, I didn't care.

Where THE GREAT ESCAPE was a somewhat-fictionalized version of a true story, GE2 is a fictional story which only touches reality at odd points (and sometimes the oddest: the part about recognizing some Gestapo officers from a painting in a nightclub is true).

The real story of the investigation of the Stalag Luft III murders would probably have been a lot more interesting, but there might not have been a part in that for Christopher Reeve.
