Great Escape, The: A Standing Ovation (2001)

*** (out of 4)

The fourth part of this documentary series can be found on MGM's Special Edition release of THE GREAT ESCAPE. This portion of the series talks about the response once the movie was finally released as well as its reputation in regards to being one of the greatest war pictures ever made. The most interesting aspect was getting to hear from the actual POWs who all gave their stamp of approval even if certain aspects of the story were changed. It's also quite clear that the critics and fans loved the movie the day it was released and that love has grown even more over the years. As one of the POWs said, even if there was only a fraction of the film that was the truth at least the story would reach people. In their words, in a day when there aren't too many heroes its good to be able to look back at this film and see some.
