Watch online movies Hollywood The Great Escape 1963 online In 1943, having expended enormous resources on recapturing escaped Allied POWs, the Germans move those POWs most determined to escape to a new, high-security prisoner of war camp. The commandant, Luftwaffe Colonel von Luger, tells the senior British officer, Group Captain Ramsey, “There will be no escapes from this camp.”

Meanwhile, Gestapo agents Kuhn and Preissen and SS Lieutenant Dietrich bring RAF Squadron Leader Roger Bartlett to the camp. Known as “Big X”, Bartlett is introduced as the principal escape organiser. As Kuhn leaves, he warns Bartlett that if he escapes again, he will be shot. However, Bartlett remains defiant and, realizing he is locked up with “every escape artist in Germany”, he immediately plans the greatest escape ever attempted, with tunnels to break out 250 prisoners.

The POWs organise into teams. Flight Lieutenant Robert Hendley is “the scrounger” who finds needed materials, from a camera to clothes and identity cards. Australian Flying Officer Louis Sedgwick, “the manufacturer”, makes tools like picks for digging and bellows for pumping air into the tunnels. Flight Lieutenants Danny Velinski and William “Willie” Dickes are “the tunnel kings” in charge of the digging. Flight Lieutenant Andrew MacDonald acts as intelligence provider and Bartlett’s second-in-command. Lieutenant CommanderEric Ashley-Pitt of the Royal Navy devises a method of spreading soil from the tunnels over the camp, under the guards’ noses. Flight Lieutenant Griffith acts as “the tailor”, creating civilian outfits from scavenged cloth. Forgery is handled by Flight Lieutenant Colin Blythe, who becomes nearly blind due to progressive myopia caused by intricate work by candlelight; Hendley takes it upon himself to be Blythe’s guide in the escape. The prisoners work on three tunnels simultaneously, calling them “Tom”, “Dick”, and “Harry”.

USAAF Captain Virgil Hilts, the “Cooler King”, irritates guards with frequent escape attempts and irreverence. Hilts and Scottish RAF Flying Officer Archibald “Archie” Ives conceive an escape attempt through a short tunnel at a blind spot near the edge of the camp, a proposal which is accepted by Bartlett on the grounds that vetoing every independent escape attempt would raise suspicion of the collective escape attempt being planned. However, Hilts and Ives are caught and returned to the “cooler”. Upon release from the cooler, Bartlett requests that Hilts use his next escape attempt as an opportunity for a reconnaissance of the area immediately surrounding the camp; Hilts turns down Bartlett’s request but does assist the prisoners as a scrounger. Meanwhile, Hendley forms a friendship with German guard Werner, which he exploits as a means of obtaining his private documents, and then as blackmail to get hold of other items for the escape. Soon, Bartlett orders “Dick” and “Harry” to be sealed off, as “Tom” is closest to completion.

While the POWs enjoy a 4th of July celebration arranged by the three Americans in the camp, the guards discover “Tom”. The mood drops to despair, and Ives walks in a daze to the barbed wire surrounding the camp and climbs it in view of guards; Hilts runs to stop him but is too late, and Ives is shot dead. The prisoners switch their efforts to “Harry”, and Hilts agrees to reconnoiter outside the camp and allow himself to be recaptured. The information he brings back is used to create maps to guide the escapees. Watch online movies Hollywood The Great Escape 1963 online Watch online movies Hollywood The Great Escape 1963 online Watch online movies Hollywood The Great Escape 1963 online Watch online movies Hollywood The Great Escape 1963 online Watch online movies Hollywood The Great Escape 1963 online Watch online movies Hollywood The Great Escape 1963 online Watch online movies Hollywood The Great Escape 1963 online
