'The Great Escape' Dated for Blu-ray

Posted Tue Mar 19, 2013 at 06:00 AM PDT by

The 1963 classic will be getting the high-definition treatment in May.

In an early announcement to retailers, MGM/UA will bring '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.

Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray will be $19.99.
