HOTDOTS: SATURDAY | 8:00  THE GREAT ESCAPE | movie | From 1963, with Steve McQueen, James Garner, Richard Attenborough, Charles Bronson, and James Coburn. The basically true tale of a group of Allied POWs digging their way out of a Nazi prison camp. Excellent, and that’s McQueen doing most of the motorcycle stunts (as both the American escapee and the Nazi who’s chasing him).
