The Great War Escape
11 November 2019 | by richardchattenSee all my reviews

At first this promises to be an early version of 'The Great Escape', which was nearly twice as long, yet showed the minutiae of digging a tunnel - disposing of the earth, for example - could easily fill an entire film of well over two hours in length and keep one interested.

Yet despite being only 85 minutes long - and boasting atmospheric photography (when it gets the chance) by Ronald Neame - this outing squanders footage on a gaping hole in the story back in Blighty as uninteresting as it is amoral in which Jack Hawkins forces his attentions on a woman he knows full well is married that eats up footage that would have been better devoted to the escape itself.
