Double bill featuring two popular war movies. In 'The Great Escape' (1963), during World War Two, a collection of hardened Allied prisoners are kept in an 'escape-proof' German camp. Led by the 'Big X' (Richard Attenborough), the men formulate a plan for a mass breakout, digging three tunnels - Tom, Dick and Harry. The team behind the escape includes a near-blind forger of passports (Donald Pleasance), a claustrophobic tunnel-digger (Charles Bronson) and the independent American 'Cooler King' (Steve McQueen). With men like that on their side, how can they fail? In 'Attack' (1956), a group of American soldiers find themselves trapped by the Germans during the Battle of the Bulge. The situation reaches a crisis point when their cowardly and indecisive captain (Eddie Albert) eventually flips into sheer panic. Angry at the lack of proper leadership, the platoon takes matters into its own hands.
