The best of the behind the scenes documentaries on this film.
30 December 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is one of a ton of documentaries that are included on the bonus disc for the collector's edition of "The Great Escape". At first, I thought "Return to 'The Great Escape'" was unnecessary, as I'd already seen 6 other documentaries on this disc. However, I was happy to see that this film was much more of the background for the making of the film than the other documentaries (which focused more on the real-life events). So, it WAS a nice addition. However, on the negative side, the film was not all that long--and I really wanted much more information, as what they did give was great! A really nice little film--especially considering that it was made about three decades after the fact! By the way, I enjoyed the one James Garner interview later in the film when he talked about Steve McQueen. McQueen had a reputation as a difficult guy and a bit of a scene-stealer--and I thought it was funny listening to Garner try to frame things so diplomatically!
