    It's coming out in Europe soon, probably later this year here. MGM seems to be working on a 6 month delay for the US for some reason

    According to the British Board of Film Classification, the Great Escape DVD will have the following extras (I'm not sure what they all are, but anyway):
    "The Great Escape - Special Features" 131m 21s
    00:24:58:17 | A Man Called Jones The Real Virgil Hilts
    00:50:44:24 | Great Escape: The Untold Story
    00:09:33:17 | Great Escape: The Untold Story Additional Interviews
    00:01:02:24 | The Great Escape Heroes Underground
    00:10:11:24 | The Great Escape: Heroes Under Ground Act 1
    00:10:07:24 | The Great Escape: Heroes Under Ground Act 2
    00:08:24:23 | The Great Escape: Heroes Under Ground Act 3
    00:08:04:23 | The Great Escape: Heroes Under Ground Act 4
    00:04:41:00 | The Great Escape: Heroes Under Ground Act 5
    00:00:56:01 | The Great Escape: Heroes Under Ground Close
    00:02:33:18 | The Great Escape
    Of course, the US version may have different (or more) extras, but this is a good guide.

    This is what dvddebate lists as extras for the UK R2:

    - Audio Commentary with Cast and Crew

    - Steve McQueen Featurette: 'An American Icon'

    - 'History vs Hollywood' documentary

    - 'The True Story of The Great Escape' documentary

    - Trivia Subtitle Track

    - Theatrical Trailer

    - An as-yet-unrevealed Region 2 Exclusive Feature

    "Region 2 Exclusive Feature" sounds interesting...

    Iain there is now another extra listed on 28/3 at the BBFC which may well be the R2 UK exclusive
    THE GREAT ESCAPE SPECIAL EDITION - UMBRO.COM - THE WORLD CUP FROM THE TUNNEL AND THE TERRACE at 5m 19s
    As this is Football related not sure how relevant it will be overseas.
    Also have you seen at www.play.com there is a special world cup package which includes a large Union Flag ! for use in cheering on England at the World Cup this summer. This would tie in nicely with the extra.

    Is this the same audio commentary as on the Criterion LD? That one even had the late director John Sturges.

    Is this World Cup thing for real?

    Can anyone tell me the connection between this movie and soccer (football)?
