THE GREAT ESCAPE is a 1963 US drama, set during World War II, in which a group of Allied soldiers attempt to escape from a German POW camp.

Violence

Several people are shot, all without visible blood or injury detail. One of the shootings leaves a dead man hanging limply from barbed wire. A group of prisoners is massacred, but the actual killings occur off screen.

Language

There is occasional use of mild bad language including 'bloody'.

Injury detail

We see a large smudge of blood on a man's face after a plane crash. Another man is shown with small bloody cuts on his face and arms.

There are occasional scenes of mild suspense featuring people in danger.

Several characters are shown smoking.
