The Great Escape (1963)

“Colonel Von Luger, it is the sworn duty of all officers to try to escape. If they cannot escape, then it is their sworn duty to cause the enemy to use an inordinate number of troops to guard them, and their sworn duty to harass the enemy to the best of their ability. Colonel, do you expect officers to forget their duty?”

James Coburn, director John Sturges, Steve McQueen and Charles Bronson during the filming of The Great Escape
