61/365 Today I…am humming

the-great-escapeToday I…have been watching “The Great Escape” (1963). This film is a regular on TV, usually at Christmas, and I have seen it many times. A stellar cast including Richard Attenborough, Steve McQueen, David McCallum, Gordon Jackson, James Garner, and many more.
Every time though, its the same response: *spoiler alert*

  • Choke back tears when poor blind Colin the forger ( Donald Pleasance) is shot
  • Shout out “Noooooooooooo!” when plucky(and gorgeous) David McCallum sacrifices himself to let the others escape
  • Pray that Gordon Jackson won’t give himself away when they trick him into speaking English
  • Hum the theme tune for the next week
