The Great Escape (1963) directed by John Sturgess
This is a private collection of original and vintage 8x10 photos that has been acquired over a 45 year period. Most of these photos are from the first release in 1963, a few are from the re-release a few years later and some others are of unknown origin, but still vintage. Intended for use at movie theaters and also sent to newspapers and magazines for publicity of the film, photos like this lot were meant to be destroyed or returned to the National Screen Service after use. Nothing has been reproduced or duplicated for this auction. All of the photos are in good to very good condition. Only 1 photo has pinholes in the corners and 7 have marks, writing or imprints on the back. Most do show general wear from use and handling which can include dings, bends or other flaws.
Hours ago... minutes ago.... these men were behind barbed wire. Now, they're running for their lives
from the Nazi horde desperate to recapture them. Based on a true story, The Great Escape deals with
the largest Allied escape attempt from a German POW camp during World War 2.
