'The Great Escape' Blu-ray Supplements Detailed

Posted Thu Mar 28, 2013 at 01:00 PM PDT by

The special features have been announced for the 1963 classic heading to Blu-ray in May. 

As previously reported, MGM/UA is bringing 'The Great Escape' to Blu-ray on May 7.

In 1943, the Germans opened Stalag Luft North, a maximum-security prisoner-of-war camp, designed to hold even the craftiest escape artists. In doing so, however, the Nazis unwittingly assembled the finest escape team in military history who worked on what became the largest prison breakout ever attempted. Based on a true story.

Exact specs have not yet been announced, but the film will feature a new HD transfer minted from a 4K master and supplements will include: Audio Commentary by Director John Sturges, Cast & Crew; Bringing Fact to Fiction; Preparations for Freedom; The Flight to Freedom; A Standing Ovation; The Untold Story; The Untold Story – Additional Interviews; A Real Virgil Hilts: A Man Called Jones; Return to The Great Escape; and Original Theatrical Trailer.

The suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $19.99.
