  • The Great Escape

    Has anyone seen "The Great Escape", I'm especially curious about people my age (just out of high school). It has been used in so many shows and movies and you hear the theme song everywhere. I recently saw the episode of the Simpsons in my drama class where they make a reference to the movie and I think there were very few that got that it was a parody off of the movie. It's a classic starring Steve McQueen and if you haven't seen it, I recommend it.

      Yes, indeed, KoH. A fine cast and the film holds up very well. You have to see it in letterbox, or referably in a revival theater on the big screen.

        It does say that it is at the beginning of the movie.
